Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that forward Romelu Lukaku used his chance in Marcus Rashford’s absence.

Taking advantage of Rashford’s injury, Lukaku was able to return to the central striker position for the match against Crystal Palace.

In his favorite position, Romelu scored two goals and led the team to an important victory with a 1:3 score.The Belgian also proved to Solskjaer that he could be a good alternative to Rashford.

The Norwegian expert said he was pleased with the way Lukaku used the moments that the team created for him.

Because of Rashford’s perfect shape, Lukaku had been playing on the flank where he couldn’t show his best qualities.

He has returned to his favorite position and now can show his real level. Solskjaer is very happy that there is such a player in the squad who doesn’t complain if he does not play in his position and just continue to do his job.
