José Mourinho hails mentality of Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku

José Mourinho hails mentality of Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku

Intent versus result could decide Romelu Lukaku's status for a series of big games.

Mourinho's side, now second in the league, remain eight points behind leaders Manchester City, who are unbeaten with 37 points after 13 matches.

He earned a corner, somewhat controversially as the ball appeared to come off him last, as he continually pressed and chased down Brighton & Hove Albion's defenders in Saturday afternoon's 1-0 win.

The 54-year-old United manager added that, in the last minute of the match, Lukaku, "was fighting and running back like he was in the first minute".

"The way Romelu wins the corner for the goal, the way Romelu ends the game-making tackles in the left-back position - that is the mentality I want. Some are capable of going to the limit of their efforts but others, even with a lot of talent, are not able to".

Lukaku has 12 goals for United in all competitions since joining from Everton for £75million in July but failed to find the net for the ninth time in 10 matches against Brighton.

Manchester United will be breathing a considerable sigh of relief following the news that influential striker Romelu Lukaku is set to be eligible for selection for a three-game stretch of Premier League matches that includes heavyweight clashes with Arsenal and Manchester City. So Romelu, for me, (is) fantastic.

But Mourinho focused on his workrate in a Man United shirt. "He didn't score, but I don't care".

The Red Devils are perhaps the only team who can overcome them this season, but if they are to close that gap, they need all of their players at the top of their game.
