Man United bid to identify fans who chanted Lukaku song

Man United bid to identify fans who chanted Lukaku song

United will look to continue their superb start to the season when they visit Southampton on Sunday (AEST).

Dušan Tadić came close on numerous occasions, however following the introduction of Chris Smalling and the deployment of a back five United held on to record a win which stands in pale comparison to more resolute victories achieved earlier in the campaign.

"In a league that is becoming so defensive, it was the first time that we played 20 minutes with a more defensive approach. We had chances to kill the game and score the second goal, but didn't".

Despite picking up another crucial three points, United were not at their best, and Mourinho has suggested the warmer weather on the south coast was responsible for this.

And it was felt that the out-and-out attacking nature of French worldwide Martial and his English counterpart Rashford would make it hard for Mourinho to partner them behind Lukaku.

"I saw some players were not sharp". "Craig (Pawson, the referee) told me to leave, and I left".




After the final whistle blew at St Mary's, Romelu Lukaku's reaction says it all.

"Nobody feels the pressure to play always attacking football because so many teams play always defensively".

United stated via their official Twitter account this week: "We remind fans of our commitment to ensuring Old Trafford remains inclusive for all. The best teams adapt to their situations".

Young has started United's last two Premier League matches and also the Champions League fixture against Basel, to outline how the former England winger will have a role to play this season.

Press Association Sport understands stewards were briefed ahead of the Carabao Cup tie with Burton on the song that uses a stereotype about black men, with a pocket of fans on Wednesday chanting about Lukaku but having appeared to tweak the words.

But the song was again heard from some sections of United's away supports along with another chant of: "We're Manchester United, we'll sing what we want".
