Romelu Lukaku still has plenty of critics. But the Manchester United striker looks set for a major role this week.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team head to Wolves for the second time in quick succession. And they will be hoping to avenge their FA Cup quarter-final defeat.
The Belgian international was unavailable for that match and he was a huge miss. Without him, United looked limp in attack and rarely trouble an impressive – and strong – back line.
United need fight to overcome Wolves on Tuesday evening. And that is where their £75million (BBC) signing comes in.
That is where Lukaku can really excel. He is fit and ready for this match and United need him for more than just his goals.
A victory for United will give them a big boost in the race for a top-four finish. It will also maintain the feel-good factor that has followed Solskjaer’s permanent appointment.
