Lukaku was at the center of both of Sanchez's goals as Antonio Conte's side pulled six points clear of second-placed Milan. The Belgium international has scored 18 goals in 24 Serie A appearances and took his assist tally to eight for the season as Inter beat Parma 2-1.
“The improvement over last year is obvious, but there are 13 games left and in Serie A each is a battle,” warned Conte. “I think I’m a very democratic coach, in the sense that I don’t give anything to anyone. There is a team and the individual comes later. (Sanchez) is in the best condition we’ve ever seen him. And now Romelu and Lautaro know that Sanchez is right behind them too. I’m happy because my kids are showing great application and resilience.”
United fans were trolled by rival fans and reminded of the decision to axe the duo while they were at Old Trafford.
