Red Devils target man is deadly within 18 yards

Fox in the box

Romelu Lukaku is offically a fox in the box - all 19 of his goals for Manchester United scored from within 18 yards.

The big Belgian is quickly establishing himself as Manchester United's main man - two goals in a pressure cooker atmosphere at Burnley on Sunday underlining his importance to Jose Mourinho's side.

At Turf Moor, 25-year-old Lukaku showcased all that is good about his game. After 17 minutes he powered home an unstoppable header from an Alexis Sanchez cross, before delivering a knockout blow 8 minutes later when he displayed his predatory instincts to pounce on momentary confusion in Burnley's area and thunder home his second from close range.

With a goal every two Premier League games in a United shirt, Lukaku has hit the ground running since joining United from Everton in 2017/18 - although his double v Burnley was only his second for the Red Devils (the other coming against West Ham).

Lukaku's superb showing against Sean Dyche's clarets was also noteworthy as it marked only the third occasion on which Lukaku has scored matchwinning Premier League goals for United.

After the international break, Lukaku and the Red Devils face a tricky return to Premier League action: away at high-flying Watford.
