Michael Owen has hailed Harry Kane as a better finisher than Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgium international has hit the ground running in his Red Devils career following his £75m move from Everton in the summer transfer window.

Lukaku scored 25 times in 36 games in the Premier League last season to finish as the division’s second highest goal-scorer behind Kane.

The 24-year-old has scored four times in his first four fixtures as a Manchester United player in the Premier League.

Lukaku netted the Red Devils’ second goal in a 2-2 draw with Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday evening.

The Belgian forward’s initial effort was saved before Lukaku pounced on the rebound to continue his prolific start to the season.

Kane has scored two goals in four games in the 2017-18 campaign so far after failing to find the net in August.

Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Owen explained why he considers Kane a better finisher than Lukaku.

“Lukaku’s a decent finisher, but I’d still say – even if he ends up with the Golden Boot – there are better finishers in the Premier League than him and Harry Kane is one of them,” Owen told BT Sport Premier League Tonight on Saturday.

Manchester United have won three of their opening four Premier League games in the 2017-18 season so far.

The Red Devils signed three players in the summer transfer window so far to improve their squad.

Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic were Manchester United’s other two signings.
