5 Sep 2018

Former Manchester United striker says Belgian striker yet to hit his prime after matching Didier Drogba's goal tally

Romelu Lukaku's two goals on Sunday took him level with one of the Premier League's greatest strikers.

Still only 25 years of age, the Manchester United striker now has 104 goals in the competition, the same number as Didier Drogba, a Chelsea legend with whom Lukaku worked as a teenager at Stamford Bridge.

And the Belgian's best years are still ahead of him, according to Dion Dublin, a former United striker whose goal sealed United's first Premier League victory in 1992 and who went on to score 111 goals in the competition.

"[The age of] 28 was my peak, because you've made your mistakes and you now know what works for you," Dublin says.
