Lukaku happy to see Zlatan return to United

Romelu Lukaku Zlatan Ibrahimovic title target

United - the only side in England's top division with a 100% record after three matches played - have Phil Jones (overseen a clean sheet across each of United's league outings) Romelu Lukaku (three goals) and Henrikh Mkhitaryan (five assists) nominated.

Lukaku joined United from Everton in an initial £75m ($96.5m) deal with high hopes that he could provide the firepower up front to help the club to a first league title since 2013.

"He will get better through the season as I think he understands this club is all about winning".

Lukaku still has a long way to go to reach the 150 strikes Van Nistelrooy netted for United, but the Dutchman likes what he sees.

Ibrahimovic had a stellar first season at Old Trafford, where he scored 28 goals in 46 appearances, before suffering a devastating knee injury in United's Europa League fixture against Anderlecht.

Manchester United's early-season form has been recognized with four nominations for August's Premier League awards.

Van Nistelrooy was speaking at Old Trafford after playing and scoring for United legends in a charity fixture against their Barcelona counterparts.

"They had a great pre-season and continued that at the start of the league", he said.

"Nine points, 10 goals and none against".

Manchester United return to Premier League action after the global break with a crunch clash against Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
