Romleu Lukaku may not be scoring as often as during his early season blitz but he still remains United’s top scorer with his strike against the Potters last week marking his 17th goal in all competitions.
With the striker looking seemingly satisfied and settled in Manchester it was no surprise to see the Belgian take a dig at former club Chelsea when asked about his time in London.
Lukaku left the Bridge permanently in 2014 after failing to impress current United boss Jose Mourinho citing a lack of game time was inhibiting his development.
In another indication that he doesn’t regard his time at Chelsea too fondly the Belgian replied that he is at a better club now during a session with an eager fan.
The reaction should appease United fans who have always been supportive of the striker despite his sudden dip in form.

Conor McGregor turned up to his latest training session in the famous green and white stripes of Celtic and looked absolutely focused in the photos he posted on social media.
The photos were addressed to his 22 million followers but Celtic fans looked especially elated with the fighter for showcasing his love for the Hoops once again.
McGregor has never been shy in admitting his love for the Hoops and even added a ‘shout-out’ to the club in his post.
His latest act of support for the Scottish champs has also gone well with the Parkhead faithful, even prompting a response from star left back Kierney Tierney.
McGregor will looked to get as fit as possible as the veteran fighter looks to defend his lightweight belt in 2018.

Not sure what to make of this bit of social media activity from Alexis Sanchez as the soon-to-be new Manchester United player left a comment on an Arsenal fan’s Instagram post about him leaving the Gunners.
The fan in question is none other than ArsenalFanTV celebrity Troopz, who paid tribute to the Chilean and blamed manager Arsene Wenger for his exit.
Not sure if serious or taking the piss, Alexis replied to the Instagram post with two sad looking emojis.
The former Barcelona winger soon deleted his comment but not before screenshots were taken by eager fans.
Check out the screenshots below –
Theo Walcott joined Everton in a deal worth more than £20 million after finally deciding to part ways with Arsene Wenger after 12 long years at Arsenal.
The forward was signed by the Frenchman when he was only 16 and the former Saints man has notched up more than 100 goals for the club since.
Given his popularity in the dressing room it was no surprise to see present and former Gunners come out to post their farewell messages for the pacy winger on social media.
While of all the messages Walcott received following his move to Merseyside were appreciated by Gooners, perhaps Lukas Podolski’s message will be deemed the pick of the lot by the red side of London.
The German couldn’t resist a dig at Spurs as he posted a photo with Walcott by saying how he loved celebrating goals against the Lilywhites with the Englishman.
The cheeky dig is set to go down well with the Arsenal support and should endear the former striker to Arsenal supporters even more.

Klopp’s shrewd tactic pays dividends
Liverpool halted Manchester City’s invincible train as once again Anfield proved to be the undoing of the Citizens. Post match reviews were filled with statistics relaying the Reds’ dominance over Pep Guardiola’s men on the night and many were left evaluating the strategy deployed by the German to dismantle the seemingly unbeatable league leaders.
In another one of those classic Klopp moves, it has come to light that Liverpool underwent a subtle shift in their starting positions during opposition goal-kicks to cut the supply lines to Manchester City forwards.
The graphic shows a miserly forward line spread around City’s creative duo of Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne which denied them any space to operate in midfield. De Bruyne in particular, struggled against the suffocating Liverpool press as Guardiola’s possession play was put to sword by the irresistible Reds.
The victory goes some way in avenging the humiliating 5-0 loss at the Etihad and Liverpudlian supporters will be overjoyed to see their manager performing miracles on the pitch as the Merseysiders became the first team in Barclays Premier League this season to come away with all 3 points against the blue side of Manchester.

Brazilain starlet Kenedy was given a rare start in the FA Cup fixture against the Canaries and the Brazilian would have been looking to impress Antonio Conte and hopefully force his way into the Italian’s plans.
While the winger didn’t do too much in the opening 40 minutes, what he did just before half-time was something a certain countryman of his was famous for.
In the week that Brazilian legend Ronaldinho retired, Kenedy produced a skill that the former Barcelona star was famous for – a flip-flap to leave Ivo Pinto red faced.
The brilliant piece of skill through the defender’s legs managed to capture the attention of Chelsea fans with the camera’s also capturing a very interesting reaction from Blues skipper Gary Cahill.
The England defender looked to be absolutely in awe of the youngster’s skill and has his reaction from the bench has been talked about by Chelsea fans.

The Hammers’ flirtations with the relegation zone led to the eventual dismissal of Slaven Bilic and although the London club have consolidated their league position ever since, West Ham fans are livid to see no transfer incomings this January.
One such fan seemed to let loose his rather morose views on club chairman David Gold’s competence, going on to label him with some x-rated words.
However apparently nobody was ready for the wicked reply Gold had in store for his critic as he navigated away from any sort of illicit references, displaying a clever presence of mind as Twitter applauded his acumen in coming up with such a cheeky response.
The joint chairman of West Ham finds himself facing criticism from a few sections of the Claret and Blue support, who see him as a hurdle in their club’s progress and want him gone. Yet it would seem he certainly won a few over with his latest social media activity.

There’s no respite when it comes to world of football transfers nowadays and with the popularity of social media in the day-to-day lives, players and agents alike are using the medium to achieve the move that they desire.
Heavily rumored target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who was left out of Dortmund’s squad to face Wolfsburg on Sunday due to disciplinary reasons, took to social media to appreciate Mesut Ozil’s little snippet of working out on the gym as the Gabon international liked the recent tweet by the German playmaker.
It’s anybodies guess whether or not the move comes to fruition during the January transfer window but it’s certain that the forward and his entourage are doing every bit to push for a move to North London.

Jesse Lingard is breathing pure fire on the field and the lad is on the wind up off the field as well.
The youngster, who just can’t stop scoring nowadays, took over the official Manchester United Instagram account and joked about rumored target Alexis Sanchez having a medical at the AON Training Complex.
Alexis Sanchez’s move from Arsenal to Manchester United seems extremely close and the Chilean could be in the starting XI for the match against Burnley this weekend.
