Lukaku is one of three new arrivals at the Theatre of Dreams this summer, joining from Everton in a £75m deal, and he admits that the pressure is on the Red Devils to play "attractive football" throughout the campaign.
"To play in front of such a crowd is a dream come true but most importantly is the three points," he told Sky Sports News. "When you play for Manchester United, you have a job to do and mine is to score goals. It is promising.
"The manager wants me to be a leader for the team and create as much as I can. We work hard in training and it is paying off. The fans want to see attractive football and we have to stick to that. They will be pleased today. It is just the start, we need to keep working to the manager's plan."
