Romelu Lukaku has made an incredible start to life at Old Trafford

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku will appear in court in Los Angeles today (October 2), facing misdemeanour charges relating to a party back in July.

Lukaku was cited for a misdemeanour after five verbal warnings about the noise he was making at a property in Beverley Hills on July 2 - just days before he completed his £75 million move to United.

Lukaku was in LA on holiday, spending time with his friend and now-teammate Paul Pogba. However there is no suggestion that Pogba was at the scene when Lukaku was booked by police.

It is not known whether Lukaku will appear in person, or send a lawyer to argue his case in his absence. The case is due to be heard at Los Angeles Airport Courthouse.

Lukaku has made an incredible start to life at United following his move from Everton over the summer, and scored again in the club's 4-0 win over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday.

However he has inadvertently been the subject of controversy, following a song which references the size of the striker's penis.

Critics claimed the song was racist and both club officials and Lukaku himself have urged supporters to stop singing it.
