Vertonghen: Lukaku is fine after knock

Vertonghen: Lukaku is fine after knock

12 Oct 2017, 14:00

Romelu Lukaku is “fine”, according to Jan Vertonghen, with the Manchester United striker ready for a crunch clash with Liverpool.

The £75 million striker nursed a slight ankle complaint during the international break, with the injury enough to keep him out of a 2018 World Cup qualifier with Bosnia-Herzegovina. He was, however, to return to the Belgium fold for a meeting with Cyprus, and netted in a convincing 4-0 win.

 Fellow countryman Vertonghen is convinced that the 24-year-old has shaken off any fitness issues and is raring to go

ahead of the resumption of Premier League action this weekend.

 The goal he got against Cyprus was so typical, a ball in behind and he brushed defenders off and smashed the ball into the net. I am sure he will be fine for Manchester United at the weekend.

 Lukaku  currently leads the race for the Premier League Golden Boot, with his seven-goal haul placing him one clear of Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata and Tottenham’s current holder of that prize, Harry Kane.
