Lukaku sets derby record, eyes Shevchenko mark


Romelu Lukaku became the first player in history to score in five consecutive Milan derbies when he netted Inter’s third goal against their bitter rivals on Sunday.

The 3-0 away victory took Inter four points clear of their bitter rivals at the top of Serie A, but there was also a personal achievement for the league’s top marksman.

Lukaku has now netted in all five of the Milan derbies he has played in, beating Benito ‘Veleno’ Lorenzi’s 1950 record of goals in four consecutive matches.

He is also Serie A’s top scorer with an impressive 17 goals, ahead of Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo, as he continues to make Manchester United regret their decision to sell him.

Lukaku may well have his eyes on another record now, as he chases down Andriy Shevchenko’s 14 goals in the ‘Derby della Madonnina’.
