Steve Clarke is confident that he can help Romelu Lukaku develop his skills at West Bromwich Albion this season.

West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke has said that he is confident he can help Romelu Lukaku progress this season.

Lukaku scored on his Baggies debut against Liverpool after completing a season-long loan move to the Hawthorns from Chelsea this summer.

Clarke believes that he can help the Belgian striker develop with regular first-team football this season.

He told the Express & Star: "One of the things he said is that he felt it was like a season wasted and he didn't learn and didn't get enough work in training at Chelsea.

"Hopefully here we can help to push him on again. He's obviously a talented player. We can help him to learn and as he's learning he'll be helping us as well.

"I know there was a number of clubs after him. I wasn't surprised he chose to come here. I knew we could offer him something maybe other clubs couldn't."

West Brom continue their tough start to the Premier League with a trip to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, August 25.
