Romelu Lukaku vs Harry Kane: Style of Play

Romelu Lukaku depends a lot on his physicality. Looking at his stature, rightly so. He has got no weak foot as such but he seems to be comfortable shooting the ball with his left foot. 

His off-the-ball movement can create havoc for any defender as he would continuously change directions to receive the ball, or he would make a run if he sees a gap in the defense. 

When running from the side of the field, he would often provide the secondary striker, or the player running inside the penalty box, with a low cross. His partnership with Lauturo Martinez at Inter Milan showed how well Lukaku can distribute the ball. 

Harry Kane, on the other hand, is your textbook definition of a striker. Whether it is running into the penalty box and positioning himself for an aerial duel or running through the defense line to open himself up for a through ball. Harry Kane’s finishing is one of the best in the world. 

Harry Kane’s ball control is top class as well, along with his ability to thread deadly through balls as he does so often at Tottenham. 

Kane's creativity and vision is something that is worth applauding as is his finishing ability. Whenever his team isn’t able to provide the ball forward, he would drop back a little and try to create a potential attack of his own.
