Manchester United were hit by a storm of injury in the match against Liverpool at the weekend which they drew 0-0. However, Romelu Lukaku feels his club have no problem with that.
The Red Devils had difficulty in the home match against Liverpool, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the coach being forced to replace his three players in the first half due to injury.
However, Lukaku believes that the team has the confidence to face difficult situations that they might face, despite having several players who experience injury problems.
"I think the coaching staff does a good job of telling us how to play and we are ready for any situation," Lukaku told theSky Sports.
"We performed well as a team and, in the game against Liverpool, we realized that we could fight under any circumstances. If an injured player we can always make sure other players enter and do work, so I am happy," he added.
Lukaku also mentioned that the last match was an improvement that had been achieved by the football team, since Solskjaer took control at Old Trafford.
"Yes, of course. Everyone talks about us as an offensive team, but I think defensively we also did a great job,"he said.
"Chris Smalling coming in for the last couple of games has been brilliant and Luke Shaw has been the best player of the season for me.
"Ashley Young has been consistent and David de Gea is the best number one in the world.
"From the midfield to the front, we try to help out and make sure the defence has an easy task. We did that [against Liverpool ] and it was all about the team.
"You always want to win these type of games, but for us it was about being mentally strong, having had players injured. We had to be resilient.
"We had some chances, but it was all about mental strength and making sure we don’t lose and grab the point.
"Obviously you want to win, but now we have to move forward and focus on Crystal Palace on Wednesday."
