Gary Neville reacts to Romelu Lukaku’s goal in Stoke v Man United
The Manchester United legend reacts to Romelu Lukaku's goal at Stoke City
Gary Neville couldn’t disguise his delight at Romelu Lukaku’s goal at Stoke City although the Manchester United legend’s joy was short lived following a 2-2 draw at the bet365 Stadium.
The Red Devils took the pitch on Saturday evening after their title rivals Chelsea beat Leicester City 2-1 and Manchester City were resounding 5-0 winners against 10-man Liverpool.
Stoke City made a strong start to the Premier League clash thanks to Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s close-range finish before half-time in front of the Potters fans.
But the Red Devils levelled a matter of minutes later thanks to Marcus Rashford’s inadvertent header after Paul Pogba had directed the initial effort on goal.
Manchester United edged into a slender lead in the second half after Romelu Lukaku scored at the second attempt following a good initial save from Jack Butland.
But Choupo-Moting managed to outmuscle England and Manchester United defender Phil Jones to restore parity following a good Stoke performance.
And Manchester United legend Neville, who watched Manchester City thrash Liverpool at The Etihad earlier on Saturday, took to Twitter to react to Lukaku’s goal.
Neville wrote on Twitter: “Get in!!!!”
Manchester United won their opening three Premier League games against Swansea City, West Ham and Leicester City.
