Watch: Romelu Lukaku somehow fluffs incredible chance for Man Utd


The pressure is on Romelu Lukaku to step up at Manchester United after an injury to Marcus Rashford, but the striker showed his rustiness in front of goal with a terrible miss against Crystal Palace on Wednesday.

Lukaku has been thrust back into United’s starting XI in recent weeks as injury problems have began to mount for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But the former Everton man has appeared short of confidence in front of goal and completely fluffed his lines when presented with an excellent chance to put the Red Devils ahead at Selhurst Park.

Thankfully, he atoned for his error in the first half to bag that elusive goal.
