Roberto Martinez is backing Romelu Lukaku to come out of his tricky spell for Manchester United in style.

The Belgian striker signed for Manchester United from Everton in the summer transfer window and enjoyed a brilliant start to life at Old Trafford in his first few games.

Lukaku hit the ground running at Old Trafford and he has scored seven goals and made three assists in his first 11 games for the Red Devils.

However, the forward has hit something of a dry spell in recent weeks, with the 24-year-old having failed to find the net in his last seven outings in all competitions.

Martinez knows Lukaku well from his time working with him at both Everton and also for Belgium.

And the former Toffees boss is fully expecting to see the striker turn his form around at Old Trafford and develop into a top forward for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Martinez is quoted as saying by Metro: “I’ve got a big advantage with Romelu because I’ve worked with him for four years.

“I know Romelu inside out. I think he just relishes the challenge. He’s been enjoying a really good start to the season and now is a period he is ready to cope with.

“I have no worries whatsoever. All he needs to do in his career is to carry on being himself in a club with the expectations and the demand of Manchester United. ‘For me nothing has changed in Romelu’s mind. He is confident, he has an incredible belief in what he can bring.

“All I want is that he carries on seeing himself in that manner when he scores and when he doesn’t, which is going to be highlighted in a club like Manchester United.”

Lukaku will be expecting to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action after the international break with a home clash against Newcastle United.

The Red Devils are aiming to get back to winning ways after they were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea on Sunday.
