‘END OF THE WORLD’

ROMELU LUKAKU finally ended his Old Trafford goal drought as he netted Manchester United’s third against Fulham.

Lukaku, 25, had not scored at home in the league for 997 minutes, with his last strike coming against Swansea in March.

GET HIM TO THE PAUL

JOSE MOURINHO has confirmed Paul Pogba will start for Manchester United in Valencia.

The Frenchman and World Cup winner was an unused substitute as the Red Devils breezed past Fulham in a 4-1 win at Old Trafford.

BRAND NEV STAR

DIOGO DALOT can make the right back slot his own at Manchester United, just like Gary Neville did for nearly two decades.

The Portuguese, 19, is surely the classiest young full-back in the Premier League and proved that against Fulham.

BOILING POINT

JOSE MOURINHO is ready to make a splash in the January market by joking that the club are cutting costs to hand him a transfer warchest.

The Portuguese boss could finally afford a smile and a joke after his Red Devils fired four past rock-bottom Fulham.

WANT SEM OF THAT

MANCHESTER UNITED are tracking Bristol City hot-shot Antoine Semenyo and could be tempted to make a move.

Semenyo, 18, is on loan at League Two side Newport County and has scored five goals in 24 appearances.
