So we know what he can do and we appreciate his form level is currently very high. The same must be said for Lukaku, who is scoring so regularly it is almost getting taken for granted. Looking perfectly at home at Old Trafford, as he did from the outset, in fairness, the striker appears supremely confident in front of goal and safe in the knowledge that chances will come his way.
Brilliant for Belgium, his debut campaign at United has been under-rated by many. Given his record, it was probably guaranteed he would fire the bullets for the Reds this term and compensate for the loss of the goals by last year's top scorer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The outstanding contender for March's Player of the Month, arguably he should have won it in February, the 24-year-old is a man to be feared by every top-flight defence.
If he can score in Saturday's Manchester derby against City, he was unlucky not to equalise in the corresponding game at Old Trafford when his shot struck Ederson in the face, and in the FA Cup last-four tie with Spurs, he will surely, once and for all, end any accusations of being a 'flat-track bully', using a cricketing term this time. After all, he has found the net against ex-employers Chelsea and in the knockout stages of the Champions League, not to mention Real Madrid on his competitive Reds debut in the UEFA Super Cup.
