United haven't had much luck from the spot with both Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford failing to convert penalties against Wolves and Crystal Palace, respectively.
However, former Red Lukaku has no trouble in finding the back of the net from the spot as he netted a penalty for Inter Milan on Sunday, which sent social media into overdrive.
And Lukaku puts the penalty in for CAG 1: 2 INT. Rashford and Pogba need to understudy him

So, United players are missing penalty everywhere and Lukaku is out here scoring PKs for fun for Inter? You love to see it

While Rashford and Pogba are missing penalties for Manchester United, Lukaku just score one for Inter. He has now two goals in two games in Italy!

That wasn't the only takeaway from his successful penalty. Lukaku was also subject to vile racist abuse as he stepped up to take the penalty.
A section of Cagliari fans racially abused the Belgium striker with monkey chants.
Lukaku, meanwhile, has now scored two Serie A goals in two games following his £74 million summer switch.
