Romelu Lukaku breaks another Premier League record

Romelu Lukaku breaks another Premier League record


Premier League top scorer, Romelu Lukaku, broke another record in Everton’s 4-0 win over Hull City on Saturday.
Lukaku’s two stoppage-time goals in Everton’s bashing of Hull took the striker to 21 Premier League goals for the season.

The Belgium international is the first Everton player to score 20 or more goals in a single season in Premier League history.
The last man to achieve the feat was Gary Lineker with the club in 1985/86 when the England striker scored 30 league goals.
With nine games remaining, that total is still in Lukaku’s sights as he aims to cement his position as the Premier League’s top scorer. He’s now two clear of the injured Spurs striker, Harry Kane.

The 23-year-old’s goals at Goodison Park on Saturday also took him to 81 in the competition and he is one of only four players to pass the 80 mark before turning 24.

The three previous players to do so are Robbie Fowler, Michael Owen and Wayne Rooney – so he is the first foreigner to rack up so many Premier League goals at such a young age.
