Owen Hargreaves has heaped praise on Romelu Lukaku for the strong start he has made to life in a Manchester United shirt.

The Belgian striker signed for the Red Devils from Everton back in July and has made a superb start to life at Old Trafford.

Lukaku has scored 10 goals in nine games in all competitions for Jose Mourinho’s men and he netted twice in the 4-1 Champions League victory over CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night.

The 24-year-old looks more than capable of leading the line for Manchester United this season as Mourinho looks to steer his team to their first Premier League title since 2013.

And former midfielder Hargreaves has been extremely impressed by what he has seen from Lukaku in a Manchester United shirt so far this term.

Speaking on BT Sport on Wednesday night, Hargreaves said: “He’s got everything.

“He’s got that big physical presence which Mourinho loves and I think he’s terrific with his head.

“His build-up play has also been terrific, I don’t think he’s given enough credit for that. His link-up play has been terrific.”

Lukaku will be expecting to start for Manchester United when the Red Devils take on Crystal Palace in their next Premier League game on Saturday evening.

The Red Devils are currently second in the table, level on points with neighbours Manchester City after six games of the new campaign.

Manchester United won both the Europa League and League Cup under Mourinho last season.
