Romelu Lukaku has made a fantastic start to the new Premier League season – and stats prove that he is in the form of his live.
The Belgian forward has scored four league goals in as many games and has helped Everton to an unbeaten start.
Manager Ronald Koeman, who moved to Goodison Park in the summer, managed to keep Lukaku at the club and has used the striker to the best of his abilities.
Lukaku, 23, scored an explosive hat-trick against Sunderland and netted once again in the 3-1 against Middlesbrough last weekend.
He has scored an impressive 65 goals in just 132 appearances for the Toffees and is continuing the form in the current campaign.
Oulala Fantasy Footy’s Twitter account have shown the statistics for Lukaku’s start to the season and he outshines his previous Everton form in several departments.
The graphic shows the striker improving on statistics such as shots, shot accuracy, successful take-ons and most importantly minutes per goal/assist.
Lukaku has the possibility to have his best season in front of goal if he can continue the current form.
He has cemented his position as the club’s first-choice striker ahead of Enner Valencia and Gerard Deulofeu, meaning he will have opportunity to eclipse his current best total of 18 league goals in a single season.
Koeman elected to rest Lukaku for the club’s EFL Cup third-round tie against Norwich, something he may regret as they suffered a 2-0 defeat and were eliminated from the competition.
Everton have made a fantastic start to the league and sit in second place after five matches, with 13 points already amassed.
In other Everton team news, Koeman has delivered his Twitter verdict on the display against Norwich.
