Romelu Lukaku chose the visit of former club Chelsea to end his scoring drought against the Premier League's top teams and produce his best performance for Manchester United.The goal Lukaku did score – a neat, side-footed strike in the 39th minute – was his first against any of the Premier League's leading eight sides this season and took him onto 22 in all competitions in his first year at United. He didn't overtly celebrate the goal against a club where he played from 2011-2014 and nearly joined again last summer.It lifted United back up to second place, above Liverpool, and opened up a six-point gap to fifth-place Chelsea with 10 games remaining.Alexis Sanchez fed a pass to Anthony Martial, who laid the ball across for Lukaku to control and sidefoot home from 10 meters.Chelsea faded after the break, with Willian and Hazard less effective and Paul Pogba – recalled to United's starting lineup – growing into the game for United.
