EPL: Mourinho sends message to Lukaku after starting off the bench against Everton

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has told striker, Romelu Lukaku that “life will change for him” as soon as he ends his goal drought for United.

Lukaku played eight games without a goal for the Red Devils, and was dropped to the bench for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Everton.

Recall that Mourinho has revealed why he decided to drop Lukaku from the starting line-up.

With Manchester United 2-0 up thanks to goals from Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial, the Belgian international came off the bench for the final 25 minutes of the game.

United boss was pleased with the Lukakus’s cameo and expressed confidence that “life will change” for him once he gets his goal scoring skills back.

“I think when he scores one goal, life will change for him,” Mourinho told MUTV.

“At the moment, I think he’s under that pressure that normally the strikers put on themselves, plus the press obviously. So it’s not an easy life for strikers when they don’t score goals.

“I think he’s feeling a little bit of that, but he came into the game with good movement.

“Romelu showed good attitude, he wasn’t losing the ball, his first touch was better, he was much more composed, so he will be better.

“I have no doubts that soon he will start scoring goals.”
