Romelu Lukaku says he’s happy Manchester United had clear direction” when they beat Arsenal 3-1 to seal a spot in the fifth round of the FA Cup.


The Belgian, who assisted Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard to give United the lead at the Emirates, said he has been “working hard in training” and it is “fun” playing in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.


"[It looks like fun to play in this team?] It does it does, We had clear direction today and I'm really happy with the win and the manner in which we played," the United forward told BBC Sport.


"I just take it a day at a time. I work hard in training and it paid off today and we won. Now it's up to me to keep working and help the team with goals and assists.


"The guys just have to put the ball in the back of the net! I always wanted to be a player who can do both, score goals and get assists.


"Look at the history of the club, we make a statement wherever we go. We look to dominate and create as many chances as we can."


Regarding the difference between the United interim manager and his former boss Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, Lukaku told Eleven Sports: "I’m not going to compare the two managers. I believe that Mourinho has done a lot for his club. He won trophies, so I have a lot of respect for him. He is the coach who signed me."


He continued: "Solskjaer has just started his story here. I hope that all goes well. I just hope we finish in the top four and that we win a trophy."
