English Premiership

NBA fan Lukaku suggests EPL all-star game

2018-02-27 13:55

Cape Town - Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku wants the Premier League to organise an all-star game, similar to the one in the NBA.

The NBA has their all-star match every year in February with fans voting for their favourite players to get the nod of playing in the star-studded event.

Lukaku suggested that league does something similar with North XI and South XI competing for bragging rights.

"Here's an idea for you guys... the NBA has an all-star game! Don't you guys think we should organise one in the Premier League. The north vs the south! And the fans vote... what do you guys think?," Lukaku said on Twitter.

The Belgian forward was involved in United's 2-1 victory over Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday scoring an equaliser while assisting Jesse Lingard with the winning goal.

United face Crystal Palace on Monday, March 5 in hopes of keeping up with Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Kick-off is at 21:45.
