Frank Lampard has warned Romelu Lukaku that he will have to share the goal responsibility with his Manchester United team-mates.

The Belgium international completed a move to Manchester United from Everton in a £75m deal in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils managed to see off competition from Lukaku’s former club Chelsea after the Blues looked to re-sign the striker following his 25-goal season.

Lukaku has already hit the ground running at Old Trafford following a return of four goals in four Premier League games.

The Belgian forward made his Champions League debut in a Manchester United shirt on Tuesday night.

And Lukaku scored Manchester United’s second goal in a 3-0 victory over Benfica in their Champions League opener.

The former Anderlecht striker netted Manchester United’s third goal in a 4-0 win against his ex club Everton on Sunday.

Former Chelsea midfielder Lampard, who shared a dressing room with the powerful striker at Stamford Bridge, offered the 24-year-old some important advice.

“Lukaku was the man [at Everton],” Lampard told BT Sport.

“Whenever the ball went into the box, he really wanted to get on the ball and have a shot.

“Now in Manchester United team, he won’t always be scoring. He’ll have to make runs to make space for others.”

Lukaku was sold to Everton from Chelsea during Mourinho’s second spell in charge of the west London side.

The Belgian forward proved a prolific goal-scorer for the Toffees to earn a move to Manchester United and a reunion with Mourinho.
