Everton’s Romelu Lukaku tweets delight at scoring 100th goal in club football

Romelu Lukaku

Everton forward Lukaku scored his 100th club goal against West Brom.

Lukaku scored two goals for Everton on Monday evening, clinching an impressive 3-2 comeback victory over West Brom, but it was a memorable evening for the Belgian striker for another reason.

Taking to Twitter, Lukaku confirmed that his second goal for the Toffees in the victory - which came as the 84th minute winner - was his 100th goal in club football.

This is an incredible feat for a 22-year-old to reach, and even more proof that Lukaku is one of the top strikers of his generation.

Lukaku became a first-team starter with first club Anderlecht as a 16-year-old, going on to score 41 goals in 90 games, before moving to Chelsea in 2011. He managed just 15 appearances for the Blues, without hitting the back of the net, although he spent prolific spells on loan with West Brom, and then Everton.

After his loan deal with Everton, he moved to Goodison Park on a permanent contract, and has so far scored an impressive 42 goals in 90 games - with six in nine this term.

He is still only 22-years-old, which makes his achievement even more fantastic, and Everton fans will be hoping he is still wearing a Toffees’ shirt when he hits his next century.
