Romelu Lukaku has suggested that things should still click for him at Manchester United.
The 25-year-old, who came to Everton last summer with a value of £ 75 million, entered before the Champions League clash on Tuesday night with Juventus.
Lukaku has scored four in 12 games this season, compared with 11 in 12 last semester. If he fails to hit the net against the Italians, it will be his sternest career for the club.
Romelu Lukaku has admitted that things have not been clicking for him at Manchester United so far
Lukaku could not score when Manchester United pulled away from Stamford Bridge with a draw
He is playing well internationally and was blank twice for Belgium against Switzerland.
When asked why he finds it easier to score for his national team, Lukaku said: "I do not know, with Belgium I have played for 10 years, since I was 16. The players know me much more.
& # 39; Here I still think that my teamwork between me and my colleagues can improve and be much better. It is something that we are working on.
& # 39; Players need to know me and know my movement. When I start clicking, I think the results I have with Belgium will also come here. "
United and Lukaku will face former hero Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford. And the forward believes that the returning Portuguese is an inspiration.
"Look at the way he plays," he said, "the way he plays, the way he prepares for the bigger games.
& # 39; It's a guy who has been consistent for the past 10 years. He is an example for all the young players that come. "
Lukaku is waiting for the clash with Juventus, as he says Ronaldo is an example.
United recovered from a poor first half to beat Newcastle and rebounded from a 1-0 deficit at Chelsea to go 2-1 before being denied victory in injury time.
Lukaku believes they need to improve their game from the start.
"In the first half we started slowly, without initiative on the ball, without movement," he said. "In the second half, everything we said we wanted to do in the first half we did.
That's why we came back and got great results. Now the key is to start the games as we do in the second half. "
United's boss, Mourinho, has been under pressure, but Lukaku says the mood has improved.
Lukaku could not describe the slow start of United.
"We have a plan every time we go against a team, but I do not know how to explain it," he said. "It's just something we need to get out of.
"Offensively we're prepared very well, but then it's on the ball where we need to make a difference."
He also revealed that the mood in United's locker room had improved after a bad run that put pressure on José Mourinho.
"The mood is really positive," he explained. "Obviously we are disappointed with the way the game ended against Chelsea.
"It will take us time to be where we want to be, but the last two games have shown that we can play, we can move forward and we have played to make a difference." The work we are doing behind the scenes has to be delivered in victories. "
