He has scored 11 goals for Belgium

Granted those goals have not come against the strongest opposition, but Lukaku’s 11 Belgium goals are more than double his Manchester United total at any ground.

Lukaku’s poor form stretches away from home too. He has scored just four goals all season and none since netting at Watford back in the middle of September.

But the Belgium international has scored 11 goals for his country during that period

Lewis Hamilton has won 11 F1 grands prix

That’s not bad considering only 25 F1 drivers have ever won more than 11 races in their entire career!

The 2018 season was only one race old when Lukaku scored against Swansea and since then Hamilton piled up the wins over the remaining 20 races to collect his fifth world championship.

Alexis Sanchez has been paid £12m in basic wages

Nice work if you can get it. Alexis Sanchez’s weekly pay of £350,000 has already made contract extensions awkward at Old Trafford, with other players using it as leverage.

But his eye watering take home pay before any bonuses has certainly accumulated since Lukaku’s last home goal. The Chile forward may even have the funds to buy a striker to solve United’s goal problems on his own.

There have been 14 ministers resigning over Brexit

Lukaku may be struggling in front of goal but at least he does not have to deal with him team-mates walking out on him after every ‘swing and a miss.’

Prime Minister Theresa May’s struggles in trying to map the United Kingdom’s future after Brexit have seen 14 of her ministers resign over the last four months.

Kylian Mbappe has won four trophies

Lukaku has scored in just four Manchester United games since March, meanwhile Kylian Mbappe has picked up just as many trophies in that time.

On the same night as Lukaku’s strike against Swansea, the French starlet won the French League Cup with Paris Saint-Germain. That was followed by the league title and French cup for a domestic treble, then of course the big one with the World Cup in the summer.

Around 92million babies have been born worldwide

How many of those will go on to forge a career in the game? Will any of those ever make it to Manchester United?

Regardless of their life paths they all have something in common and that’s none of them will have experienced Lukaku scoring at Old Trafford.

Twenty players have scored at Old Trafford

There have been 28 goals scored since Lukaku’s last strike with Marouane Fellaini’s winner on Tuesday taking him level with Paul Pogba on three goals since March.

Twelve of those 20 players have been for the opposition, including Lucas Moura for Tottenham Hotspur who struck twice in a 3-0 win for Spurs back in August.

There have been 14 new No 1s

The charts may have passed their heyday when you would tape the top 40 on the radio every Sunday, but they are still going and have gone through many new No 1s since March.

Who would have thought back then that we would see ‘Three Lions’ at No 1 before seeing Lukaku net at Old Trafford again? 

Manchester City have scored 83 goals

While one United striker is having a tough time of it, they are queing up for goals just down the road.

Manchester City have become one of the world’s most feared teams under Pep Guardiola and would you rule them out reaching 100 before Lukaku ends his drought?

Real Madrid have gone through three managers

The start of Real Madrid’s problems began on one of their greatest nights in history after winning an historic third Champions League title back in a row back in May.

It led shortly to the resignation of Zinedine Zidane and he was replaced on the eve of the World Cup by Spain manager Julen Lopetegui. But a disastrous start to this season has seen Lopetegui depart and recently replaced by Santiago Solari.

Germany suffer two humiliating tournament exits

Some of us were starting to think it would never happen again judging by the way Joachim Low’s team seemed to always get it right once the big games come round.

But their first ever exit from the group stage of the World Cup was followed a few months later by relegation from the elite group of the inaugural Nations League.
