Brighton striker Glenn Murray ‘feels sorry’ for misfiring Manchester United star Romelu Lukaku: ‘They don’t play to his attributes’
- Romelu Lukaku has not scored for Manchester United in his last eight games
- He last found the back of the net in the win away at Watford in September
- Glenn Murray believes Jose Mourinho’s wingers do not suit the Belgian’s style
Glenn Murray believes Manchester United don’t play to Romelu Lukaku’s strengths… and he feels sorry for his fellow Premier League striker.
The much-maligned Belgian has gone eight games without a goal, last finding the back of the net in a win over Watford in September.
With United struggling for goals and results, Jose Mourinho will be hoping for a shift in fortunes when they host Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Glenn Murray admitted on Goals on Sunday that he feels ‘sorry’ for Romelu Lukaku
Belgian international Lukaku is without a goal in his last eight Manchester United appearances
Murray, who is among the top scorers in the league this season with six so far, told Goals on Sunday: ‘I feel sorry for him, they don’t play to his attributes.’
‘With Manchester United you’ve got wingers coming in and shooting which is not ideal for a player of his ilk.
‘But he’s a guaranteed 20-goals a season. He’s maybe hit a little bit of a dry patch at the minute but he will come good.
‘He’s shown his class time and time again.’
Mourinho’s side will be aiming for a return to winning ways after a difficult week saw them surrender all three points at Chelsea last Saturday, and lose at home to Juventus in the Champions League.
