Romelu Lukaku hails Manchester United character

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku talks up the importance of his side's 2-0 win over Burnley following back-to-back Premier League defeats.

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has hailed his side's character after they returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Burnley this afternoon.

Lukaku scored both goals for the Red Devils as they responded to Monday night's 3-0 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur, comfortably seeing out the game despite having Marcus Rashford sent off.

The Belgian missed a number of chances to complete his hat-trick too, while Paul Pogba also saw a penalty saved, but Lukaku was nonetheless pleased with his side's improvement in front of goal.

"That was really big. In the last game we started well but didn't take our chances. This time we did," he told BBC Sport.

"We knew we had to grind out the result in the second half. We have character and we need to be more like that. The last game against Tottenham - we were disappointed. Today we did score and we have to keep winning to try and catch the teams above us.

"Now we go into the international break and can switch off a bit. The manager has time to analyse our performances for the rest of the games in September."

Lukaku's brace was his first since scoring twice on his debut for the club at the start of last season.
