Romelu Lukaku's goal against Chelsea on Sunday was his first for Manchester United against a side in the top eight of the Premier League.

Romelu Lukaku finally made a splash against top-tier opposition for Manchester United, as Jose Mourinho's side secured a 2-1 victory over top-four rivals Chelsea.

Lukaku scores for first time agains top-eight

Belgium striker Lukaku came into the fixture against the Blues with 21 goals to his name in all competitions, but none of them coming against the top eight teams in the Premier League.

Such a barren run has led to criticism of the former Everton man, but Jose Mourinho has kept faith and that was rewarded on Sunday.

Lingard wins it at Old Trafford

Lukaku latched onto a neat flick from Anthony Martial to cancel out Willian's powerful opener and send the sides in for half-time level at 1-1.

United went on to claim three points in the second half, with substitute Jesse Lingard scoring the winning goal with a header after 75 minutes.
