Romelu Lukaku's Second Half Masterclass For Inter Vs Torino Shows Manchester United Could Do With Him Right Now
Romelu Lukaku produced two goals and two assists in 26 minutes last night as Inter Milan ran out 4-2 winners over Torino.
Inter welcomed Torino to the San Siro and found themselves 2-0 down after 62 minutes due to goals from Simone Zaza and Cristian Ansaldi.
But Lukaku grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck and dropped an absolute masterclass to single handedly win the game for his team.
Check out the highlights below.
Alexis Sanchez equalised for Inter after Lukaku hit the bar before heading the rebound into the Chilean's path.
Sanchez then turned provider to help Lukaku tap home an equaliser.
Inter were then awarded a penalty which the Belgian dispatched before crossing for Lautaro Martinez, who sealed victory.
Lukaku has found his form in Italy after a spell at Manchester United, who moved him on in favour of playing Anthony Martial up front.
But the Frenchman hasn't scored in the Premier League this season and fans think Lukaku is showing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer what he's missing.

I'm shocked when he doesn't score, a beast of a centre forward, loved Rom at Everton

Lukaku spoke to DAZN following the game and admitted he doesn't see himself as the leader at the San Siro.
"In the first hour, we played badly and we were in trouble," the 27-year-old begun per Inter's official website.
"We lacked the fight and the ability to apply pressure. As a team, we're still working on these things to be a great side. Then, we woke up, we won and now we can enjoy these three points.
"Am I a leader? No, I'm just a player who wants to help his teammates and his team.
"Here, there are many players who have been playing for this club for a long time, I'm just one of the 25 guys that want to help the team to win something.
"I'm growing and trying to improve the things that I do less well at. I want to close the gap with the champions, since the champions are the ones who win the trophies. I work with a great coach and a great team."
Lukaku has now scored seven goals in seven games as Inter sit fifth in the league.
