Serie A leaders Inter Milan moved seven points clear at the top of Serie A on Sunday as Romelu Lukaku scored after 32 seconds and bagged an assist in a 3-0 win over Genoa.

Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring after only 32 seconds with a surging run and finish from the edge of the box, his 18th league goal of the season.

"We're top of the table and that's a good feeling for us," Lukaku told Sky Italia. "We mustn't give up, last year we lost some of these games but this year we're growing.

"These matches are a chance for us to send a message to the other teams, but the season is long."

He then set up Matteo Darmian to drill home Inter's second.

Alexis Sanchez headed in the third, with his first touch since coming off the bench, after Lukaku's shot was saved.

Inter are seven points above AC Milan, who visit Roma at 19:45 GMT.

Genoa, whose seven-match unbeaten league run came to an end, are 13th with 26 points.
