Romelu Lukaku has hailed the impact Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has had on the training ground after scoring his third goal in as many games for his new manager.

The Belgium international was given compassionate leave last month which resulted in him missing the first two matches of the United interim managers tenure.

With Marcus Rashford impressing in his place, Lukaku has responded positively by scoring in three successive matches, rounding off Saturdays routine 2-0 FA Cup third round win over Reading at Old Trafford.

I take it one day at a time, work as hard as I can and help the team, Lukaku told MUTV afterwards.

I am really happy and try to improve along the way. He [Solskjaer] helps us a lot in the training when were doing finishing practice with things like how to strike the ball, how to move away from the ball.

The way he wants us to play really benefits me because he wants me to be in positions where I want to be. He understands what type of striker you are and plays to your strength.
