Lukaku is the only United player that is untouchable to fans - Mourinho

Lukaku, who has netted 11 goals this season since joining United from Everton for £75 million ($NZ144 million), extended his barren streak to five games in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur but did set up Anthony Martial's victor. The centre-forward created Anthony Martial's 81st-minute victor and Mourinho also pointed to how the Belgian was hard for Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen to deal with.

"But also, I repeat, the fans are the fans, they pay their ticket and they do what they want, but as a manager I feel the duty to protect my players when I feel they deserve it". "But my job, when I feel they deserve it, is to protect my players".

"Today if we drew the match, or even in the last minute we concede a goal and lose 1-0, I would never be against the players because I felt that from minute one, every ball was like the last ball of their careers".
