Lukaku names strikers he studied before making Man Utd move

Romelu Lukaku has revealed he studied the games of Hugo Sanchez, Edinson Cavani and Javier Hernandez before making the move to Manchester United.

The 24-year-old has scored 11 goals in 17 outings across all competitions since arriving at Old Trafford from Everton in the summer.

"I've improved my movement, especially in the box," he told DH.

"Two years ago, at Everton, Roberto Martinez made me watch videos of my own movement, but also those of other strikers like Hugo Sanchez, Edinson Cavani and Chicharito.

"You need to sit down and watch the Uruguayan's movement inside the box. It's incredible.

"On top of that, I worked three times a week on my runs inside the box with my coaches."
