The Belgian striker has returned to Inter after a disappointing spell at Chelsea.

Inter manager Simone Inzaghi has praised Romelu Lukaku for his impressive start to the new season.

Lukaku hopes to regain his best form at Inter after a loan move from Chelsea earlier this summer. 

The Belgian star scored only a minute into Inter’s league opener against Lecce. 

He didn’t find the back of the net when the Nerazzurri smashed Spezia 3-0 last weekend. However, Inzaghi has no concerns over the striker’s form.

“I think he did the first two games in the best way. It is not a matter that concerns only Romelu, but the whole team,” Inzaghi told reporters.

“We know that the condition is improving, we know we have players with important physicality and therefore we knew we needed some important games. 

“We started quite well, we want to continue trying to improve all our players, including Lukaku. 

“We also want to recover [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan, who will be very important, there will be 19 games in a row before a stop [for the World Cup]. We will have to try to have all the players available. Tomorrow everyone travels except Henrikh.”

Inter will face Lazio in their next league game on Friday.
