Koeman: Lukaku nearly impossible to replace

Koeman: Lukaku nearly impossible to replace

The Reds have enjoyed a flying start to 2017/18, sitting top of the Premier League, after taking 10 points from the first four games, and leading Group A in the UEFA Champions League following a dominant 3-0 win over FC Basel on our return to Europe's top competition on Tuesday.

Paul Pogba's hamstring injury rules the midfielder out of Manchester United's clash with Everton and for a further few weeks after that.

The Portuguese, though, did play down his record in his second seasons at clubs. "You have better conditions to work and get those results", Mourinho continued. It is hard because this is the country with more teams that fight for the title. That's what the fans want, it's what we all want.

United are one of the favourites to be Premier League champions come May, but Mourinho has consistently refuted that the Reds are the favourites.

Jalen Hurts hits Calvin Ridley for 78-yard TD
Alabama LBs Rashaan Evans (groin), Anfernee Jennings (ankle) and Dylan Moses were all held out of the game on Saturday. Hurts capped a six-play, 75-yard drive with a 27-yard rushing touchdown to make it 7-0 early in the first quarter.

Mourinho may be talking about players like Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez, who he claimed he wouldn't have sold had he been in Louis van Gaal's position. When asked which United strikers he looked up to when he was younger, he said: "Andy Cole, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Dwight Yorke and, obviously more recently, Wayne Rooney".

Everton will be reunited with Lukaku when they make the trip to Old Trafford to face United on Sunday, with the Belgium worldwide already having scored six goals for his new club. As the Merseyside club prepare to visit Old Trafford for game week 5, the occasion promises to be much more than just another game of football.

Lukaku scored 25 goals last season for Everton and has only been at the club for four years and Koeman says replacing the number of goals is a huge task.
