Romelu Lukaku Overtakes Didier Drogba for Premier League Goal
Romelu Lukaku scored his 105th Premier League objective against Watford
We separate the insights behind Romelu Lukaku’s scoring record after his objective helped Manchester United to a 2-1 prevail upon Watford at Vicarage Road.
The Belgian has been in productive shape recently, scoring four times in his initial five Premier League appearances of the season notwithstanding three objectives in two recreations with Belgium amid the universal break.
Obviously, his scoring accomplishments are just the same old thing new. Lukaku’s short proximity complete at Vicarage Road took him to 105 Premier League objectives over his spells with Chelsea, West Brom, Everton and Manchester United.
He has now overtaken his former Chelsea team-mate Didier Drogba in the Premier League scoring charts, so does he deserve more credit?
Manchester United record
Lukaku was criticised at times during his first season at United, not least when he only scored once in 12 appearances between October and December, but a final total of 27 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions represented an impressive return.
Sixteen of them came in the Premier League, and he has now taken that total to 20 in 39 appearances across the two seasons. At Manchester United, the only players to reach that milestone in fewer games are Ruud van Nistelrooy, Robin van Persie and Dwight Yorke.
