2 shots, 2 goals; Romelu Lukaku the hero as Everton beat West Brom

Barkley, Lukaku, Barry

The striker scored two and set up the other as his side came from two goals down at the Hawthorns.

Everton’s 3-2 victory over West Brom was one that saw several players step up to the plate to help the Blues secure victory.

Finding themselves two goals down to a Tony Pulis side is not a position that many teams would want to be in, and it was some achievement from Roberto Martinez’s side to get all three points.

The hero of the hour was obviously Romelu Lukaku as he bagged two goals and got an assist in an impressive second half turnaround from the Toffees.

And his stats from the game demonstrate just how impressive a performance he put in against his old side.

First and foremost were his two goals, with the first getting his side back into the game and the second proving to do the winner.

What is more impressive though is the fact that he only had two shots throughout the entire game, with both of those ending up in the back of the net.

While his finishing was on point, he overall ball control was also impressive in the game as he enjoyed 40 touches throughout the game with only three of them proving unsuccessful, a success rate of 92%.

His assist proved that he can be more than a goalscorer for his side as well, and in this game his passing was also on top form as he enjoyed a pass success percentage of 80%.

An all around top quality performance from Romelu Lukaku though, whose goals helped his side fight back and move up to fifth in the table.

Everton will be hoping he can keep up this kind of form for the rest of the season.
