Roberto Martinez insists Romelu Lukaku is “still getting fit”

Martinez: “Rom’s still getting fit.

“I thought he was a real threat [vs Liverpool] at times although sometimes he found it a little bit difficult to cope with the intensity.

“Physically we need to get him 100 per cent.

““Coming back from the World Cup is always difficult for any player, especially for him, a player who needs to be full of power and full of aerobic pace.

“We haven’t got him there yet, but the games will help.

“We play on Thursday and we’ve got another game on Sunday and before he goes back to Belgium (for the international break) we can get him back to full fitness.”
