Fuming Lukaku turned on Man Utd teammates after Chelsea blank

Belgium 3 Mexico 3 Lukaku and Lozano hit doubles in pulsating draw

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku stated that he was "born to score", after the Belgian returned to the scoresheet on Friday as he notched two in Belgium's 3-3 draw with Mexico. I don't think many strikers of my generation have as many goals as me.

Jose Mourinho has personally defended Lukaku on a number of occasions in recent weeks, stating that the striker was 'untouchable in my team.' However, there still appears to be tension between United fans and the Belgian global.

The 24-year-old powerhouse became Belgium's joint-top scorer of all time on Friday night by scoring a brace in a 3-3 draw with Mexico in Brussels, taking his global tally to 30 goals.

Manchester City have capitalised on United's woes, with Pep Guardiola's side now boasting an eight point lead in the Premier League.

After the game he said: "At a young age I've achieved something great like this which is really good but there is a lot of work to be done and I'm relishing the challenge".

"I am like a leopard in the box".

"When you face a team like us it's hard for opponents", Lukaku concluded. "Him (Ibrahimovic) coming back will help us chase Manchester City".

The Red Devils are set to welcome back Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo in the coming weeks.

"We are still in the early stages of the season and nothing is over yet", Lukaku added. "We started by blowing teams away, being dominant and creating chances. Ibrahimovic coming back will help us chase Manchester City".

"But in the last few weeks we didn't play at the same level and that made it more hard for me". "We can do much better than we are doing now".

Like Lukaku this season, Ibra was an ever-present in Jose Mourinho's starting XI last term before cruciate knee ligament damage brought his first season in England to an abrupt end.
