Jesse Lingard says he has been impressed with Romelu Lukaku’s “humble” nature since his transfer to Manchester United from Everton.

The Belgian striker signed for the Red Devils from Everton back in July as Jose Mourinho moved quickly to bolster his attacking options at Old Trafford.

Lukaku has been in good form for Manchester United since his move to the club and has been happy to lead the line for Mourinho’s men in their opening games of the campaign.

And Red Devils winger Lingard says he has been impressed by Lukaku’s attitude at Old Trafford since his switch to the club.

Speaking to Manchester United’s website, Lingard said: “He’s come in and already scored a lot of goals for us, so we know what he’s about.

“But, he’s a humble lad and he’s keeping his feet on the ground.

“He’s physically strong, powerful, quick, holds the ball up well and runs in behind for us, so he gives the guy on the ball a lot of different options.

“He’s come in and got his head down and he’s getting the rewards now. He just wants to keep improving and scoring goals.”

Manchester United kick off their EFL Cup campaign this week with a home clash against Burton, before returning to Premier League action with a trip to Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement back in 2013.

Manchester United finished sixth in the table last season but won both the EFL Cup and Europa League in Mourinho’s first term in charge at the club.

The Red Devils kicked off their Champions League campaign with a 3-0 win over Basel at Old Trafford last weekend.
