West Brom striker Lukaku likens Clarke to Mourinho

West Bromwich Albion striker Romelu Lukaku has likened manager Steve Clarke to Jose Mourinho.

Lukaku joined the Baggies on a season-long loan from Chelsea this month and scored in a 3-0 win against Liverpool on Saturday.

He said: "We saw what he did for many years at Chelsea, where he was a great assistant coach working with Jose Mourinho.

"Now he's showing everybody he can do it in the top flight as a manager. The gaffer knows the game. And if you know the game, you can manage really well.

"If we can play like we did against Liverpool, we'll have a great season. But we have to be humble and realistic because sometimes we'll have bad games.

"Getting a win against Liverpool was the most important thing and the goal I scored was just a part of it."
