Jose Mourinho's side are yet to play any side now in the top 10 of the Premier League.

"Without Zlatan, we can not rotate the striker, especially because Marcus Rashford is playing also in other positions", said Mourinho, whose side face Crystal Palace on Saturday. Speaking to ITV (h/t Aaron Flanagan of the Daily Mirror), Keane praised the team's new No. 9.

Mourinho has been very clever in the transfer market this summer signing both Lukaku and Nemanja Matic, two players he knows better than anyone and both used to living in England and used to the Premier League.

"So I think he's a global evolution". The Citizens have scored an incredible 16 goals in their last three Premier League games.

"They are back now competing and you would expect United to be in the latter stages of the Champions League and you would expect them to be competing to win the Premier League".

With Man United and Manchester City scoring goals and winning games for fun, there is now pressure on the Blues to pick up victory when they travel to the Potteries, requiring just one more point to hit the milestone 1,8000 during the Premier League era.

At Everton last season when chances fell to him he was lethal in the penalty area, and now with the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba providing support, opportunities are coming about much more frequently. He has got off to a good start.

"He's a big, strong boy and he speaks well and comes across well and seems like a decent character".

He added: 'The big tests for Lukaku will come in the big games. For way of contrast, Ruud van Nistelrooy didn't score his 10th goal in a United shirt until November.

As Manchester United fans revel in the rumours surrounding Antoine Griezmann, Steve Nicol argues those stories could unsettle the players.

"We are looking at these outstanding strikers all in great form but the time to judge them will be at the end of the season when the medals and trophies are being handed out".

"We have started competitions strong in August and September and have now just one more game, a hard one".
