West Brom striker Lukaku: Mulumbu has goals in him

West Bromwich Albion striker Romelu Lukaku says teammate Youssouf Mulumbu has goals in his game.

West Bromwich Albion striker Romelu Lukaku says teammate Youssouf Mulumbu has goals in his game.

The DR Congo international took the man of the match honours in Saturday’s 2-1 win over in-form Swansea.

"I think Youssouf was the best player on the pitch on Saturday and he seemed to start every attack,” on-loan Chelsea striker Lukaku told the WBA website.

“His role has changed slightly and he seems to push up the team more. All he is missing is some goals and I keep telling him that in training.

“He is working very hard on his finishing and his offensive play. It’s hard when you’ve been playing as a holding midfielder and now you have moved up the pitch into a more attacking position.

“It’s very difficult in the beginning but he will get there and by the end of the season he will score a few goals to help us climb the league.”
