Romelu Lukaku has revealed that Jose Mourinho warned his Manchester United players that they must all fight for their places in the team between now and the end of the season.

Lukaku netted his 100th Premier League goal to add to Alexis Sanchez’s strike as the Red Devils claimed a 2-0 win over Swansea City at Old Trafford on Saturday to take a big step towards securing a top four finish.

It has been something of a mixed season for Manchester United, with the Red Devils struggling to product consistent form in all competitions.

Mourinho’s men were dumped out of the Champions League last month following a shock defeat by Sevilla in the round of 16.

And with Manchester City having run away with the Premier League title, the Red Devils are left playing for a top-four finish and the FA Cup this season.

And Lukaku has revealed that Mourinho has told his players that no place is secure as the Red Devils look to enjoy a strong end to the campaign.

Speaking to BBC Sport on Saturday, Lukaku said: “Of course it is important to finish strongly. The manager told us we all have to fight for our place in the team.”

Reflecting on his landmark goal, he added: “I’m really happy to achieve that milestone. It is a dream come true. l’m really happy to achieve that in a league I’ve wanted to play in since I was six years old.”

Manchester United return to Premier League action next weekend with a crunch clash against Manchester City.
