Jose Mourinho and Rio Ferdinand were both asked about Lukaku's struggles in front of goal and offered completely different opinions.
"No, he's going to score soon", the United boss said.
Lukaku's powerful strike against Newcastle United 12 days ago is all he has to show in terms of goals in his last 11 outings, having previously netted 11 times in his first 10 games for the club.
"They have dried up I think it's coming out of the box too much", explained Scholes.
United have enough creative players to dominate in midfield, so they don't need Lukaku helping them when he could be making runs in behind the defence.
Former United defender Ferdinand has backed Lukaku to rediscover his goal-scoring form, but insists the Belgium global must first learn to live with the pressure of vying for a spot with Ibrahimovic.
"I don't think Jose Mourinho will be anxious about Romelu Lukaku's lack of goals, but I think ultimately he's got two big games coming up", he told Sky Sports News.
"Lukaku gets more chances created for him [than at Everton] but he's also under more pressure [at Man United], so misses get scrutinised, and rightly so, but these are the games where he can silence his critics".
The one saving grace for Lukaku is that he seemingly retains the full faith of Jose Mourinho, despite the return to fitness of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the £75m striker playing every minute of his side's Premier League campaign.
