Michael Owen's Analysis Of Romelu Lukaku Is Angering A Lot Of People

Michael Owen's Analysis Of Romelu Lukaku Is Angering A Lot Of People

Michael Owen triggering an angry backlash on social media is becoming almost as regular an occurrence as Romelu Lukaku finding the back of the net and last night, those two events merged into one perfect happening that saw the former Liverpool man come in for a tidal wave of abuse after he criticised Lukaku's movement, despite the Belgian striker scoring twice during Manchester United's 4-1 Champions League victory over CSKA Moscow.

While Owen claimed that Lukaku's electric start to the season should see the Belgium striker hit 30 goals, this season, he also claimed that the 24-year-old 'hardly moves' which is an assessment that has not been well received at all, on social media.

Given that Lukaku currently has 10 goals in nine games since joining United, and has linked up almost effortlessly with the likes of Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Henrikh Mhikitaryan, perhaps his movement isn't actually an issue at all. In fact, United's attack looks a lot more mobile and fluid with the Belgium up top compared to how they performed with Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line, last season.
