Romelu Lukaku angers Ashley Young and Man Utd fans in Leicester win

Romelu Lukaku was unable to build-up on his impressive performance against Arsenal in the FA Cup when Manchester United recorded a 1-0 win over Leicester on Sunday.

He found himself back on the bench as Marcus Rashford played centrally with Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard operating at either side.

Lukaku provided two assists against Arsenal but had little impact when he came on to replace Rashford at the King Power Stadium. There was only 12 minutes left to play but the Manchester Evening News described his performance as “blunt”.

One moment stands as Ashley Young gets notably frustrated.

An opportunity opened up for the England international to drive at the Leicester City defence but Lukaku stood idle, demanding the ball to his feet rather than running towards goal, which would have probably gave the full-back more space to run in behind.

Young was left with no other option but to play a risky pass to Lukaku, only for the Foxes to win back possession.

United fans were also frustrated by the sluggish piece of play, expecting more from their £75 million signing (as per BBC Sport).

United fans feel Lukaku should show more willingness to help teammates out.
