In the defence there were the presence of three-star defenders named Toby Alderweireld, Thomas Vermaelen and Jan Vertonghen. Timothy Castagane and Nacer Chadli were the two wingbacks. Hans Vanaken and Youri Tielemans started in the midfield while the trio comprising of Eden Hazard, Dries Mertens and Romelu Lukaku were there at the upfront of the field.

So apparently, Romelu Lukaku has better stats than Arsenal legend Thierry Henry internationally. This comparison is doing rounds now on social media. However, the Belgian failed to make any sort of major impact at Manchester United. Will that come back to haunt him or is this current form, already haunting the Red Devils’ fans? Let’s hope not.
