Question marks remain over Lukaku's performances against elite opposition, though, with the 24-year-old having failed to score against any of the Premier League's top eight in 2017-18.

'We can understand he's from Madrid and would be playing for a team that would be challenging for the Champions League season after season'. He looked a senior player, he looked a player with great maturity, with tactical sense, with a sense of responsibility, good in possession, good in the pressing.
