The Belgian forward rounded off the scoring on the day by turning home Anthony Martial's cross for his seventh goal of the season
In doing so, Lukaku matched a record set by Red Devils legendary forward Andy Cole.
"Of course it is nice for a striker to score, it is nice for him to equal the record of such a legend in the Premier League like Andy," Jose Mourinho told Sky Sports.
"But I am happy with him – it doesn't matter if he scores or not.
"I was thinking in the latter stages of the game that probably Lukaku doesn't score in this game and I was thinking he [already] had a good performance and a good contribution for us.
"So Lukaku is not just about the goals he scores, he is about the way he plays and allows other people with different qualities than him to have conditions to shine and perform."
