The 20-year-old is criticised for going down far too easily under challenges, and the youngster seems keen to build his strength – in the same way team-mate David De Gea did after he, too, was considered too light-weight for the Premier League.

The Belgium international revealed, “I do a lot of work in the gym,” as quoted by the Mirror.

“I am trying to be faster and stronger so I can be tougher when I go out on the pitch.

He added: “I am doing a lot of short, sharp stuff so, when I turn a defender or go past a player, I can just get a few metres away from them with my acceleration.”
