Lukaku was confident he could dominate Lovren, says Mourinho
The Belgium international gave Liverpool’s defence a torrid time at Old Trafford, earning the praise of his manager despite failing to find the net
Jose Mourinho admitted he was delighted to see Romelu Lukaku give Dejan Lovren a nightmare 90 minutes in Manchester United’s victory over Liverpool.
Lovren and fellow Reds defender Trent Alexander-Arnold endured an afternoon to forget as they were continually outmuscled by the Belgian in a 2-1 reverse.
And while Lukaku did not find the net Mourinho was pleased to see him making an impact, while insisting that he did not go out to target Lovren.
