Romelu Lukaku has received his fair share of criticism for recent performances and again failed to find the net for Manchester United in the side’s 2-0 defeat of Benfica.Paranoid? Jose Mourinho hits out at ‘specialists’ moments after Man United win

The Belgian had the perfect opportunity to break his duck during a one-on-one with Mile Svilar in the second-half but the young goalkeeper saved well, making it six games on the bounce without a goal for the striker.

Despite his frustrations in front of goal, Lukaku showed his class in the 55th minute following Anthony Martial’s failed attack down the left flank for the Red Devils.

Lukaku initially appeared frustrated, throwing his hands in the air as his team-mate ran the ball out of play, but his secondary reaction was brilliant.

Instead of berating Martial for making the error, he encouraged and praised the Frenchman’s ambition.

Martial overran the ball on the left wing…
