The Belgian has been in superb form of late for the Toffees, and these impressive stats from Opta go some way to demonstrating why.
That’s the assessment gleaned from fresh Opta statistics highlighting just how influential the 22-year-old has been so far this term.
With 10 Premier League goals to his name, the Belgian may remain four behind current top scorer Jamie Vardy, but it would appear he is holding his own when it comes to his contribution in both the league and cup.
In fact, according to a tweet from OptaJoe, the former Chelsea man may rank as the most influential player in the Premier League when it comes to scoring and creating goals.

Such an assessment comes as Lukaku looks set to go one better than Cristiano Ronaldo when it comes to the number of goals the Portuguese ace managed by the time he was 23.
Prior to his goal against Bournemouth at the weekend, the Belgian had bagged 50, with Ronaldo’s record standing at 54.

But with Lukaku adding one more to his tally and not 23 until May, the likelihood is that he will overtake that figure.
Meanwhile, in scoring against the Cherries, the Everton man maintained his impressive top-flight record for the Toffees, and during his previous spell on loan at West Brom.
