Luka's goal

Luka Modric says only one thing is missing from his game at the moment - goals.

And our Croatian playmaker is targeting one of the matches of the season to open his Premier League account as champions Manchester United arrive at the Lane on Saturday.

Luka returned to the side after a groin injury to play a key role in Monday's 2-0 win against West Ham.

Even Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola recognised Luka's influence, admitting his side struggled to deal with him in his position just off the striker.

Luka now has his sights set on United - and getting on the scoresheet. "I'm very happy and enjoying my football," said Luka. "The only thing missing in my game is scoring goals. I think once I score my first goal it will be easier for me.

"I want to score so much and it would be a dream to score against United on Saturday."

Luka admits this us one of the games he's been looking for to. "It's a big game for me and the whole club," he said. "I'm sure people will be watching it on television back home. There will be a lot of interest.

"It will be a difficult game because, for me, Manchester United is maybe the best club in England but I hope we can win.

"We are now full of confidence, especially after the win at West Ham."

A reminder that Saturday's game kicks-off at 5.30pm.
