Romelu Lukaku made two scores at the Serie A match against Sassuolo. Inter Milan survived a fightback to win 4-3 at Sassuolo.
Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan is on a point behind the leaders, Juventus. The club had a 4-1 lead thanks to doubles from Lautaro Martinez and Lukaku with Domenico Berardi equalizing for the hosts.
Former United striker, Lukaku’s first goal was a powerful drive and his second was a penalty.
Filip Djuricic and Jeremie Boga scored for Sassuolo to set up a tense finale.
“We did everything right in the first half and should have scored more in the second,” Lukaku said.
“Once it goes to 3-1 and 4-1, it ought to be over. The positive we take is that we got the three points, but we need to defend better than that.”
“I’m feeling good but need to work even harder to help out the team for the entirety of matches. I’m happy today because the victory was important for the group. Now, I’ll only think about improving still further.”
Lukaku has scored five goals in eight Serie A games since leaving Old Trafford for the San Siro in the summer.
