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

The incident allegedly happened during United's 1-0 win on Saturday, but referee Neil Swarbrick took no action.

I am amazed that all three former referees on the FA retrospective panel did not view Lukaku's double kick on Bong as an act of violent conduct.

United next face an all confident Watford side at Vicarage Road on Tuesday before travelling to the Emirates to face Arsenal and welcoming Manchester City to Old Trafford.

There were worries that the Belgian could miss the tough run of fixtures against Watford, Arsenal and Manchester City, but news that Lukaku won't be retrospectively sanctioned eased any United concerns.

Only came to light after a few Brighton fans mentions on Twitter late on Saturday night.

In the build up to the goal, Romelu Lukaku got into an altercation with Brighton defender Gaetan Bong.

The 54-year-old United manager added that, in the last minute of the match, Lukaku, "was fighting and running back like he was in the first minute". The shot ended up finding the back of the net. And unfortunately not every player is the same.

Lukaku has scored 12 goals in 20 games since arriving from Everton in a £75 million deal in the summer but after starting his United career with 11 goals in his first 10 games, he has scored just once in his last 10.

"Players are men, men are different, men are unique cases and some guys are capable of going into their limits of effort and some other guys, even with a lot of talent, they don't manage to do that". So Romelu, for me, (is) fantastic.
