Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku and France goal poacher Anthony Martial have equalled the record for Manchester United’s most prolific combination in a single Premier League season.
Both strikers are proving to be a deadly duo for the Red Devils, combining once again during their side’s 2-1 league victory over Chelsea on Sunday.
Martial set up Lukaku for United’s equaliser before the Belgium international assisted Jesse Lingard for the all-important winner at Old Trafford.
It was the third time in the 2017/18 Premier League season to date that Martial had set up for Lukaku, who has equally assisted the Frenchman three times, for a goal.
And their combination is now the joint-highest for United in a single Premier League season, featuring alongside some of the greatest names to ever pull on the club’s colours.
Martial and Lukaku’s combination of six goals (three goals and assists apiece) matches eight previous tallies in United’s history in the Premier League era.
Chelsea’s Cesar Azpilicueta and Alvaro Morata have also combined six times, alongside Liverpool stars Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
Martial is not too far behind in a different combination, having linked up five times with Paul Pogba so far this season as well.
