Lukaku’s miserable record against Liverpool

first_imgRomelu Lukaku Lukaku’s miserable record against Liverpool: Man Utd striker fails to snap sorry sequence Goal Last updated 2 years ago 00:55 10/15/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Romelu Lukaku Manchester United Getty Images Romelu Lukaku Manchester United Liverpool v Manchester United Liverpool Premier League The Belgian forward has impressed since joining the Red Devils for £75 million, but endured another afternoon to forget in his latest visit to Anfield Romelu Lukaku had mustered 11 goals in 10 appearances for Manchester United prior to taking in his biggest test to date.Having made a seamless transition from Merseyside to Manchester following a £75 million summer transfer from Everton, the Belgium international was back in familiar surroundings this weekend.Utd 6/1 to beat Benfica 1-0 Article continues below Editors’ Picks Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. He will have to wait until New Year’s Day before taking in a first visit to Goodison Park as a United player, but the Red Devils were across Stanley Park at Anfield on Saturday.His recent form suggested that he was capable of being a serious thorn in Jurgen Klopp’s side, even when taking into account an ankle problem nursed back to health during the international break.Lukaku’s record against the Reds is not the best, though, and he endured another afternoon to forget as he failed to offer further justification of his sizeable transfer fee.Romelu Lukaku record v LiverpoolThe 24-year-old has now gone nine games against Liverpool without being on the winning side – although that cannot be considered entirely his fault.He has met the Reds on 14 occasions, with those outings spread between Chelsea, West Brom, Everton and United.His first appearance came as part of a makeshift League Cup side while at Stamford Bridge.Another top-flight appearance for the Blues followed before helping the Baggies to a Premier League double in the 2012-13 campaign.Lukaku netted in both of those fixtures, before bagging a brace in his first Merseyside derby on November 23, 2013.Even those efforts were not enough to secure a win, with his last taste of victory coming during his time with West Brom on February 11, 2013.A 2-0 success that day also represents the only time to date in which Lukaku has found the back of the net at Anfield.Romelu Lukaku record v LiverpoolSo, after that bright start, which delivered four goals in six games across all competitions (four in four in the Premier League), the burly frontman has endured something of a barren run against the Reds.In his last eight meetings with Liverpool, Lukaku has found the target just once – on October 4, 2015.In truth, he has barely looked like improving that sorry sequence, with too many of those outings seeing him make minimal impact.As a man who makes a living from beating opposition goalkeepers, Lukaku has failed to muster an effort on target in five of the aforementioned eight fixtures – and only one on Saturday as he spurned a rare clear-cut opportunity.4 – Only 4 players (Vardy, Hazard, Alli, Sigurdsson) scored more goals against the @premierleague top 6 last season than Lukaku (4). Myth. pic.twitter.com/NZ1VW2kDUB — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) July 6, 2017 Lukaku’s record against ‘big six sides’ has also been scrutinised since he became the subject of interest from the best teams in the business.Only 15 of the 85 Premier League goals he managed for West Brom and Everton came against opponents which fall into that bracket.Even this season, having scored in 12 of his last 14 games for club and country, the calibre of those he has faced has been called into question.Aside from a consolation effort against Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup, Lukaku has netted against West Ham, Swansea, Gibraltar, Greece, Stoke, Basel, Everton, Southampton, CSKA Moscow, Crystal Palace and Cyprus.He can, of course, counter that argument by pointing out that he can only produce the goods against those put in front of him, while he undoubtedly requires better service and more attacking intent from United than they mustered at Anfield if he is to truly thrive on the grandest of stages.last_img read more

Stars Come Out For AIDS Walk Los Angeles

first_imgLast week’s 28th annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles saw a massive turnout, with 30,000 participants filling the streets of West Hollywood and Los Angeles.Video: Michael Urie and Sophia Bush Addressing the AIDS Walk LA crowdCelebrity supporters, elected officials, and notable AIDS activists addressed the crowd assembled in and around West Hollywood Park before the walkers set out on the route.The event also achieved strong fundraising results, which benefits AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA) and 29 other important L.A. County AIDS service organizations. These groups provide urgently needed care to thousands of people living with HIV, as well as vital prevention work that reaches many more throughout the Southland.“The 30,000 participants who took to the streets today can take pride in the incredible $2,912,209 raised to fight AIDS and lift up the lives of those affected by HIV,” said Craig R. Miller, Founder and Producer of the event. “Thanks to the thousands of dedicated people who walk and fundraise each year, we have made tremendous progress and we are facing a better day in the fight against AIDS,” Miller says. “But we have to remain strong in our response. We have to remain vigilant. And most of all we have to remain visible.”Since its inception, AWLA has raised more than $75 million for APLA and a host of other HIV/AIDS service organizations throughout Los Angeles County.“As we mark the 31styear of the epidemic in the United States, AIDS Walk Los Angeles remains a critical – and, in fact, the single largest – source of private support for those who rely on APLA’s services,” said Craig E. Thompson, Executive Director of AIDS Project Los Angeles. “With their incredible fundraising, AIDS Walk Los Angeles participants are changing lives, powering prevention efforts, and supporting advocacy work to defend the civil rights of all who live with this still-deadly disease.”The event’s visibility was compromised this year when AIDS Walk Los Angeles’ fully paid ads were banned by the City of Santa Monica’s transit line, Big Blue Bus, along with all other advertisements and public service messages from charities. Only “commercial” advertising is allowed under the new policy. For the past six years, these advertisements have been a mainstay of the event’s organizing campaign. According to City officials, the ads generated no complaints.AIDS Walk Los Angeles Founder and Producer Craig Miller blasted the ban by Santa Monica City Hall as both injurious to the fight against AIDS and an assault on Free Speech. “These bus ads are a key element in raising funds and awareness for AIDS Walk Los Angeles,” said Miller. “This censorship can only reduce our capacity to fight the epidemic, and will greatly disadvantage all community-driven organizations once served by Big Blue Bus.”AIDS Walk Los Angeles organizers were joined by APLA representatives at a recent Santa Monica City Council meeting to protest the ban.The AIDS Walk Los Angeles Opening Ceremony featured Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and West Hollywood Mayor Pro Tempore Abbe Land, who spoke about the current HIV/AIDS crisis in Los Angeles and West Hollywood and about the importance of the community’s response.Other elected officials and special guests in attendance included: United States Representatives Howard Berman, Adam Schiff, and Maxine Waters; California State Senators Curren D. Price and Rod Wright; California State Assembly members Betsy Butler,Isadore Hall,and Ricardo Lara; Los Angeles City Council members Paul Koretz, Paul Krekorian, Jan Perry, and Dennis P. Zine; Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich; Los Angeles City AIDS Coordinator Ricky Rosales; Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent John Deasy; and West Hollywood City Council members John J. Duran and John Heilman.Celebrities and notable figures at the event included Christa B. Allen (“Revenge”), Leslie Bibb (“GCB,” “Popular”), Sophia Bush (“Partners”), Drew Carey (“The Price is Right” Host), Barrett Foa (“NCIS: Los Angeles”), Daisy Fuentes (Television Host), Christopher Gorham (“Covert Affairs,” “Popular”), Dot Marie Jones (“Glee”), Pauley Perrette (“NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigation Service”), Andrew Rannells (“The New Normal,” “Girls”), Jai Rodriguez (“Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”), Michael Urie (“Partners”), BeBe Wood (“The New Normal”), the cast of MTV’s “Awkward” including Jillian Rose Reed, Nikki Deloach, Jessica Lu, Molly Tarlov, plus a special reunion with cast members from the critically acclaimed TV show “Popular” including, along with Bibb and Gorham, Bryce Johnson, Tamara Mello, and Carly Pope. Norm Lewis (“Scandal”) closed the Opening Ceremony with his performance of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”The corporate community continued to show its strong support for the event through team fundraising and corporate sponsorship. This year’s Presenting Sponsor was AHF Pharmacy. This year’s Grand Sponsors included ABC7, The David Geffen Foundation, Paramount Pictures, Paul Hastings, Time Warner Cable, and Toyota. Principal Sponsors included Albertsons, Delta Air Lines, Macy’s, Marilyn & Jeffrey Katzenberg, and Vons/Pavilions.For more information, please visit aidswalk.net/losangeles.
