Now 24 and with six years of Premier League experience behind him, Lukaku is now ready to succeed at the top level according to his manager, unlike in 2011 when he joined Chelsea from Anderlecht. "I think Romelu has come here at the right moment," Mourinho said.

Lukaku's strong start to life at Old Trafford, he has six goals in six games for United, will help to offset the absence of France midfielder Paul Pogba, who may be out for several weeks. Pogba's hamstring injury, sustained in the early stages of Tuesday's 3-0 Champions League victory over Basel, will certainly keep him out of Sunday's match. It is a significant setback for United, who started the weekend on top of the Premier League after collecting 10 points from their opening four matches.
