Romelu Lukaku was named Man of the Match in Manchester United’s 3-1 victory over Arsenal in the FA Cup, after assisting the first two goals.
Alexis Sanchez, whose every touch was booed at the Emirates, opened the scoring. Lukaku revealed after the game that he had predicted Sanchez would score against his former club.
I told him yesterday in training, ‘Listen, you’re going to score tomorrow’.
I said to him I’d give him the ball as long as he ran inside if I couldn’t shoot. I said to him, ‘Just run in and I’ll find you’. I think you could see when I got the ball I was looking for him and he made the right run and the finish for him was incredible.
