Romelu Lukaku insists ‘something special’ developing with Rashford

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku says that he is developing a special striking-partnership with Marcus Rashford.

Both forwards started in Jose Mourinho’s 4-2-3-1 system as United crusaded to a comfortable 4-0 win over West Ham on Sunday. Lukaku ended up grabbing a brace on his league debut for the Red Devils.

The Belgian said: “With me and Marcus, there’s something special. Hopefully we can produce even more than we did today.

“We clicked from the first day that I arrived, and I knew that he would help me settle in at the club.

“I knew Jesse [Lingard] from before, and Paul, they’re probably my closest friends in the dressing room, but I get on with everybody in the team.”
