Why Romelu Lukaku won’t start for Man United vs Tottenham

Tottenham vs Manchester United

Can Man United keep their winning run going when they face Tottenham at Wembley in the Premier League on Sunday?

Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer arrived at Old Trafford, Man United have won five matches in a row.

The Red Devils are sixth in the Premier League with 38 points.

Tottenham, meanwhile, are third in the league on 42 points.

It’s also worth noting that when these sides met in the league back in October, Spurs beat Man United 3-0.

Harry Kane opened, before Lucas Moura bagged a brace.

Romelu Lukaku vs Marcus Rashford

Man United have spent the week in Dubai for warm weather training.

According to the Star’s chief football writer David Woods, during their trip, Solskjaer has made a key decision about Man United’s attack.

Romelu Lukaku has scored in his last three matches for the Red Devils.

However Lukaku has reportedly dropped down the pecking order at the Theatre of Dreams:

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told Marcus Rashford he is now Manchester United’s No.1 striker.

Solskjaer has held talks with Rashford on the club’s warm weather trip to Dubai and made it clear he will spearhead United’s attack ahead of Romelu Lukaku.

The Star predict that Rashford will spearhead United’s forward line versus Spurs, while Lukaku will start the game on the bench.
