Romelu Lukaku is not able to find the net after he returned from injury. But he showed his class in a top-of-the-table thrilling clash at the San Siro. The problem in thigh meant Lukaku missing defeat of Champions League of Inter defeat to Barcelona and Antonio Conte is not at all hesitant in putting the young player straight back into his starting XI recently.
He has scored three goals after he moved to Manchester United in the deal of £74million and he has been keen to add to his tally opposite Juve, but it was Gonzalo Higuain who caught the headlines with a late winner for the champion of Serie A champions. Lautaro Martinez canceled out the opener of Paulo Dybala with a penalty that came at the 18th minute of the game and the match seemed to be moving toward a draw. Although, Higuain the second-half substitute had a different idea in mind.
He slotted past Samir Handanovic at the time when only ten minutes were left and men of Maurizio Sarri held on for 3 points to leapfrog Inter at top of the list. Although it was not the result he aspired for, Lukaku might be able to have some comfort that he made Matthijs de Ligt seem rather silly during the first half.
The boss of Inter Conte is hoping that Lukaku can put the trouble his injury is causing him behind his game after watching his promising performance opposite Juve. ‘Romelu is surely a player who needs to be trained more, because he is a player with a heavy body and therefore, he needs more training for both to play as well as to be in great shape,’ Said, Conte after the defeat of Inter.
