Romelu Lukaku believes Manchester United are "back to ourselves" after a difficult few months.

Jose Mourinho's sacking has rebooted things at Old Trafford, where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could scarcely have wished for a better start to life as caretaker manager.

The Norwegian has overseen five wins from as many matches, emulating the great Sir Matt Busby in making that 100 per cent start to life in the United hot seat.

Saturday's 2-0 win against Reading in the FA Cup was the most unconvincing of those triumphs to date, but Lukaku believes Solskjaer has got the team back to where it should be.

Put to the striker that things are going well after scoring in a third-successive match, he said: "Yeah, not only for me but for the rest of the team.

"I think we are back to ourselves and it's good to see the players enjoy (it) and winning games, which is the most important thing.

"We are Manchester United and we try to go out there and win every game."
