“Lukaku is criticised because people rate him really highly and see that he can do much more than he is at times prepared to give,” Keown told DailyMail.

“Didier Drogba was one of the best lone strikers in Premier League history but I do not think Lukaku is quite at that level yet.

“When Manchester United are being dogged — as they were at Anfield — they need to see more from Lukaku.”
