Jesse Lingard hails Romelu Lukaku's superb start at Manchester United

The number one thing on every supporter's list over the summer would have been a proven Premier League goalscorer - somebody who relishes the prospect of taking apart lesser sides - and there aren't many more established in that department than Lukaku.

His efficiency in front of goal dropped off in the last few seasons, and the two sides chose to part ways amicably during the summer.

Rio Ferdinand has told Romelu Lukaku to emulate Chelsea legend Didier Drogba by scoring "big goals in big games" for Manchester United.

Koeman's substitutions failed to produce a goal, and as the Dutchman said after the game, relayed by Corriere dello Sport: "They gave us a lesson in football".

And the United boss wants his achievements to be recognised before and after - just not during the match itself.

"I think the stadium will show him the respect he deserves".

"We miss Pogba, we need Pogba, but we have good players - Herrera, Fellaini, Carrick - who are waiting", the manager explained.


Romelu Lukaku has scored four goals in his first four Premier League apps for Manchester United, only two players have scored five goals in their opening five games for the Red Devils (5 - Louis Saha and Robin van Persie). "We've also had a few European games as well".

"Yes, it's different in possession now for us if you have a target man up front".

He said: "Especially for a striker it's important how many goals you score but I don't put any pressure on a player over that".

"Because what I saw on the pitch was a big difference between Atalanta and Everton in belief and confidence, and also in aggression and passion".

"After that result, of course you have thoughts about the team, individual performances and what we need to change", Koeman revealed. For some reason Koeman chose to play him out on the left against Spurs and he was pretty ineffective all game. Dominic needs time and Sandro needs to adapt to the Premier League.

"I like to be realistic, about what happened in the first 45 minutes, and I then make my conclusions about that. So I think he has come at the right moment of his career". That said, key players have departed, and Atalanta have made a modest start to this term. 'He's one of the best strikers and I said several times last season he is a real finisher.
