Tottenham defender Alderweireld: Man Utd striker Lukaku just unbelievable

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld says he's ready for the challenge of facing Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.

Alderweireld believes Lukaku is so prolific that his mini-droughts get highlighted more than dry spells of other, regular strikers.

“Romelu scores so many goals all the time that people get used to it," he said. “If for a period he does not score or things do not go his way, of course, he plays for a big team in the Premier League so everybody expects a lot of him.

“But he is coming back to form. He is an unbelievable striker. I have played with him in the national team for a couple of years, and he is a great person, too."
