Lukaku joins the 100 Club

Romelu Lukaku’s opener for Manchester United against Swansea City on Saturday meant he joined an exclusive club, reports Sky Sports.

The goal was his 100th in the Premier League, and made him the fastest foreigner to reach that target and the 5th quickest of all time, with just Michael Own, Robbie Fowler, Wayne Rooney and Harry Kane ahead of him on the all-time list.

His 100 goals have been spread across three clubs, although he never scored for Chelsea, who originally brought him to England in the first place from Anderlecht as a teenager. Instead he went on to score 17 for West Bromwich Albion whilst on loan in 2012/2013, 68 during his time at Everton, and 15 so far this season for United.

52 of his goals have come from his favoured left foot, 26 with his right, 21 with his head and another one classed as other. His favourite opponent to date is West Ham United, because he has scored 9 goals in 11 Premier League appearances against the Hammers.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
