Romelu Lukaku’s effort in Manchester United’s warm-up before Spurs match is going viral


A second-half collapse saw Manchester United crash and burn at home to Tottenham on Monday night.

Jose Mourinho’s side produced a decent performance in the first 45 minutes and could consider themselves unlucky not to be ahead.

That’s because they were presented with a golden opportunity to take the lead after just 16 minutes.

Danny Rose scuffed his back-pass to Hugo Lloris which Romelu Lukaku latched on to.

He rounded the French goalkeeper and was left with an open goal on his right foot.

However, Lukaku somehow proceeded to screw his effort wide.

It proved costly as Mauricio Pochettino’s side romped to a 3-0 victory after a Lucas Moura brace and Harry Kane’s header.

A penny for Lukaku’s thoughts.

But it wasn’t Lukaku’s first embarrassing miss of the night.

A video of him during Man Utd’s warm-up before the clash with Spurs is going viral – and it’s for all the wrong reasons.

Lukaku was taking part in finishing practice before kick-off and had been teed up for a shot on the edge of the box.

But the finish with his left-foot was rather incredible and ended up almost closer to the corner flag.


Just take a look:

Wow. That’s ridiculously bad.


While United fans will no doubt slam Lukaku for his miss during the first-half, Gary Neville attempted to defend him at half-time on Sky Sports.

“Look, he should score,” Gary Neville said.

“I do have a little bit of sympathy for Lukaku.

“I feel like I would have missed it myself. It’s right foot, bending away from goal, [Toby] Alderweireld is coming back so it wasn’t as easy as it looks.

“If you look at it there, it looks simple. But at full speed… look, he should score. There’s no defence for a player of his quality. He should score and it’s a big moment in the game.”
