Man Utd’s Romelu Lukaku, this season’s unstoppable man

Lukaku

That’s according former Manchester United defender and Sky Sports pundit Danny Higginbotham.

Lukaku has been in awesome form since joining the Red Devils from Everton for an initial £75m in the summer.

The Belgian has scored seven goals in his first seven Premier League games for his new club.

Higginbotham has been impressed with how the Belgian has handled the pressure of signing for a team of United’s stature.

“I think he’s going to be very difficult to stop and he’s had a great start to the season.”

And he says his team-mates will continue to provide him with plenty of chances to score throughout the season.

“I think the one thing that I’ve really liked about Lukaku is when you join a club like Manchester United, there is instant pressure on you,” said Higginbotham.

“The price tag was enough, but then to join a club like Manchester United, there’s been so many great No 9s over the years.

“He’s just hit the ground running, it’s been easy for him.

“In terms of teams finding him out, I think what he’s got is that he’s got players around him now that even if he does one thing and opposition teams go ‘okay, we can stop him doing that’, there’s so many different players that can support him now, so many different players that can assist him.

“I think he’s going to be very difficult to stop and he’s had a great start to the season.

“Like I said the price tag, which is nothing to do with him, he can’t choose that.

“But to join a club like Manchester United, you’re expected to hit the ground running and he’s done just that.”

Jose Mourinho’s side travel to Anfield for a massive clash with Liverpool after the international break.
