Romelu Lukaku has warned his Inter teammates they still have a lot of work to do before becoming Serie A champions.

Inter are 11 points clear at the top of the table with only eight games left, making them heavy favourites to win the club’s first league title since 2010.

Lukaku has been in scintillating form for Antonio Conte’s side, with 21 league goals to his name this season, but the Belgian is eager to avoid anybody getting complacent.

“There are still lots of games left,” Inter’s star striker told 433 during an Instagram live broadcast this evening (as quoted by FcInterNews.it).

“We’re hungry to reach our objective.

“We had ups and downs last year but we’re all working hard and we’ve made another step this season.

“Personally, I’m feeling good.”

Lukaku is coming to the end of his second season in Serie A, having joined Inter from Manchester United in a club-record transfer during the summer of 2019.

Asked about the challenges of playing in Italy, the 27-year-old said: “It’s a difficult league where you’re always put to the test tactically.

“Every match is a different challenge.

“Our defenders and Samir Handanovic are doing a great job and even us attackers know that, if we don’t concede anything at the back, eventually the goals will come at the other end.”

Lukaku also explained the secret to Inter’s recent defensive success, with the Nerazzurri having kept nine clean sheets in their last 13 league games.

“Conte always says that the strikers are the team’s first defenders,” Lukaku revealed.

“For that reason myself, Lautaro Martinez, Alexis Sanchez and Andrea Pinamonti always try to block our opponents’ moves before they start.

“We’re four generous forwards and the whole team benefits from this.

Lukaku offered his thoughts on Inter’s new badge as well, adding: “It’s part of the club’s process of modernisation.

“Everyone has been expecting to see Inter at the top again in recent years and I can’t wait to show off our new shirt next season.”
