Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has fired a warning to Premier League rivals saying the league leaders have plenty of goalscorers to fuel their attacking style this season. (English Premier League Home | Fixtures | Standings/Table)

United are on top of the league table after four matches, scoring 12 goals. A 2-2 draw against a determined Stoke City last weekend was the only blip in their season so far.

Lukaku has been in the thick of the action, scoring four goals in as many league appearances. The Belgian forward also struck on his Champions League debut on Tuesday as United beat Swiss club Basel 3-0 in Group A.

“There are plenty of goals in the team,” Lukaku told the club’s website (www.manutd.com) after Tuesday’s win, during which his compatriot Marouane Fellaini and fellow forward Marcus Rashford also got on the scoresheet.

“That’s what the fans want, it’s what we all want. We work really hard in training on a daily basis and it’s good that different people can jump in whenever,” he added.

On Sunday, Lukaku, who signed for United in the close season, will come up against his old club Everton. The game will also mark the return of Wayne Rooney to Old Trafford after the striker rejoined his boyhood club.

The 24-year-old Lukaku scored 68 league goals for Everton in three seasons.
