No goal, no problem as Jose Mourinho hails Romelu Lukaku's work rate

No goal, no problem as Jose Mourinho hails Romelu Lukaku's work rate”

During a keenly fought encounter at Old Trafford, Lukaku appeared to kick out at Brighton's Cameroonian defender Gaetan Bong.

The 24-year-old has more often made a decisive impact in the final third this term, with his eight goals in 13 Premier League matches, but Mourinho was also satisfied by Lukaku's work rate and defensive contribution as Chris Hughton's side made it hard for United in the 1-0 win.

The Belgian global is waiting to discover whether his actions during a Premier League clash with Brighton will see him stung by retrospective punishment.

But Omnisport understands Lukaku will face no further action from the Football Association in relation to the incident after it was reviewed by three former match officials.

"In the last minute he was fighting and running back like he was in the first minute". The shot ended up finding the back of the net.

Brighton proved a tough nut to crack on Saturday for Man United. And unfortunately not every player is the same.

Reports say Lukaku is under investigation for aiming a pair of kicks at Brighton and Hove Albion's Gaetan Bong on Saturday.

However, Sky Sports News understands that the panel could not agree that an offence was committed and Lukaku, therefore, avoids what could have been a three-game ban for violent conduct. So Romelu, for me, (is) fantastic.

This Belgian marksman had scored seven goals in seven league starts, but he has since scored only one goal in the next six Premier League matches. "Didn't score, I don't care".
