Romelu Lukaku & the 4 Other Man Utd Players to Score in Their First 2 Premier League Games

ames Romelu Lukaku scored again for Manchester United at the weekend as the club continued their fine start to the new Premier League campaign. In doing so, the £75m Belgian became only the fifth player to score in each of his first two Premier League games for the club, joining a rather exclusive list from the last 25 years. Even veritable goal machine Ruud van Nistelrooy didn't manage such a feat, while Marcus Rashford's explosion onto the scene started in the Europa League. But here's a look...

Romelu Lukaku - August 2017

Opponents: West Ham, Swansea

A week on from bagging a brace on his United Premier League debut against West Ham, which came five days after scoring on his competitive debut in the UEFA Super Cup, Lukaku scored the crucial second against Swansea that set the team on the way to another 4-0 win.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic - August 2016

Opponents: Bournemouth, Southampton

Much like Lukaku, Zlatan Ibrahimovic had scored when he took to the field in a United shirt for the first time in an official game after netting the winner against Leicester in the Community Shield. He followed that up with two more in consecutive to kick off the league season.

Anthony Martial - September 2015

Opponents: Liverpool, Southampton

Anthony Martial's £36m arrival at the very end of the 2015 summer transfer window came as something of a shock, but he started in the ultimate fashion when he scored against Liverpool just moments into his debut. Eight days later he scored a brace against Southampton.

Federico Macheda - April 2009

Opponents: Aston Villa, Sunderland

Despite his career ultimately not taking off, Italian forward Federico Macheda will forever remain a cult hero at Old Trafford for the role he played in the 2008/09 title race after an iconic 93rd minute against Aston Villa. A week later he also scored against Sunderland.

Louis Saha - January 2004

Opponents: Southampton, Everton

A deflected free-kick on his debut against Southampton was the perfect way for Louis Saha to start his United career. In the very next game the Frenchman scored twice more as United scraped a 4-3 win against Everton after a defensive collapse in Rio Ferdinand's absence.
