When Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring for Manchester United, against Swansea City, in the fifth minute, the Belgian striker set a unique record.
Lukakau, at just 24-years-of-age, became the youngest foreign player to score a century of Premier League goals.
Lukaku, who Manchester United signed from Everton in the summer transfer window, has already played for Chelsea, West Bromwich Albion, Everton and Manchester United in the Premier League and the majority of those one hundred Premier League goals were scored for Everton, but his feat remains a remarkable achievement.
Speaking to the media about reaching the milestone, Lukaku had this to say,
‘I’m really happy to achieve that milestone. It is a dream come true. l’m really happy to achieve that in a league I’ve wanted to play in since I was six years old.’
Lukaku has now scored twenty-six goals for Manchester United this season, already a fine return for his new club, I wonder how many the Belgian will finish up with at the end of the season?
I reckon it`ll be around the 32-33 mark, how about you?
