1 dribble, 1 key pass, 76% pass accuracy: Was Everton’s Romelu Lukaku good enough v Burnley in Premier League?

Romelu Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku was on target for Everton against Burnley at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Sunday, but how was his overall performance?

Romelu Lukaku was on fire for Everton last season, but this term he has yet to hit those heights.

Part of the reason is that the 21-year-old striker has often been played out wide by manager Roberto Martinez, but it cannot be denied that the Belgium international has been underpar.

On Sunday, Lukaku appeared to have cost Everton the points at Burnley in the Premier League when his sloppy pass allowed Danny Ings to open the scoring at Turf Moor after 20 minutes.

However, the youngster, who moved to Everton from Chelsea on a permanent deal in the summer transfer window, did not lose his confidence.

Indeed, Lukaku equalised for the Merseyside outfit just before the half-hour mark and also created one chance as the game progressed.

It was not the best of performances from Lukaku, but the former Anderlecht striker has been among the goals recently and is gradually gaining form.

In the past two seasons, Lukuka has shown that he is prolific goalscorer and there is no reason to doubt his credentials now.

The Everton star has scored four goals and created five chances in nine Premier League appearances so far this season, while having a pass accuracy of 76% and a shot accuracy of 56%.

Lukaku needs to step up his game as the season progresses, and he will do so.
