Former Nigerian striker, Jonathan Akpoborie has tipped the trio of Romelu Lukaku and Cristiano Ronaldo for the Premier League golden boot award.
Recall that the Chelsea striker has netted three goals since the London club this summer while Ronaldo scored a brace in Man United’s 4-1 win over Newcastle.
In a chat with Goalballlive, the former Wolfsburg striker stated that it would be difficult for defenders to stop Lukaku and Ronaldo from scoring.
“Lukaku has shown that he has improved from when he first came to Chelsea. He is more dangerous and will be tough to handle in the Premier League.
“Likewise Ronaldo whose second coming was marked with two goals against Newcastle in his first game at Old Trafford.
” I strongly believe Lukaku and Ronaldo will battle for the Premier League golden boot award this season.”
