After going seven games without goal, Romelu Lukaku finally got back his grove; scoring one of the goals as Manchester United crushed Newcastle United 4-1 over the weekend.

While the Belgian is understandably relieved getting back to scoring ways, his manager, Jose Mourinho, is even happier, as criticisms are already coming in for his mercurial summer signing.

Speaking at his post-match news conference, Mourinho said: "He (Lukaku) is a striker and strikers like to score goals.

"It is not a problem for me if he works like he does and he doesn't score goals but, for the self-confidence, strikers love to score goals.

"He was not doing that for us for a few matches and I know that can affect strikers' confidence, so I was really happy that he scored that goal."

Manchester United return to Premier League action next weekend when they take on Brighton on Saturday.

The Red Devils will take on Basel in Switzerland in the Champions League on Wednesday night, as they look to book their place in the last 16 of Europe's elite club competition.
