Phil Neville is tipping Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku to score more goals than Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane in the Premier League this term.

The Belgium international completed a £75m move to Manchester United from Everton in the summer transfer window after opting to move to Old Trafford ahead of a return to Chelsea.

Lukaku scored seven times in seven games in the Premier League before he failed to find the net in a goalless draw with Liverpool last weekend.

The 24-year-old endured the same fate at Huddersfield Town as the Terriers sprung a surprise in a 2-0 victory over Manchester United at the John Smith Stadium.

Kane has netted six times in eight games ahead of the visit of Liverpool at Wembley this weekend as the England man looks to draw level with Lukaku.

The Tottenham striker has finished as the Premier League’s leading goal-scorer in the last two seasons.

But former Manchester United defender Neville is tipping Lukaku to finish ahead of Kane in the race to secure the Premier League’s golden boot.

“I am going for Lukaku,” Neville told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Kane is world class. He plays in every single game and the way he plays, there will come a moment where he needs a rest. Spurs don’t have a player to give him a rest.”
