Paul Pogba has claimed that Romelu Lukaku is the best striker in the Premier League and says Manchester United are lucky to have him.

The Belgian forward ended his seven-game run without a goal on Saturday night as he scored Manchester United’s fourth goal in their 4-0 victory over Newcastle United at Old Trafford.

Lukaku had come in for some criticism after having failed to find the net for the Red Devils for a few games in a row.

However, the Belgian striker has still got an impressive record for the Red Devils after having signed for Manchester United from Everton in the summer.

Lukaku has scored eight goals and made three assists in 12 Premier League games for Manchester United so far this term to leave them second in the table and eight points off top spot.

And Pogba, who is a close friend of the striker, rates him as the very best forward in the Premier League.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Pogba said: “I come back and Romelu scores again? I like that.

“We’ve got a lot of good players, a lot of talented players. We have to trust each other.

“Romelu is the best striker in the Premier League. We know his quality. We know everything. We don’t worry about him. And at the end, we see the result.”

Manchester United are currently preparing for their Champions League clash against Basel on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils then switch their focus back to Premier League affairs and their trip to Brighton on Saturday afternoon.
