Romelu Lukaku sets more Everton records in draw with Norwich

Lukaku Belgium

The Belgian striker got his 15th goal in all competitions in the 1-1 draw.

This season has very much been the campaign in which goalscoring records have gone by the wayside.

Jamie Vardy has been the most notable of these, with him breaking the consecutive goalscoring record previously held by Ruud Van Nistelrooy and topping the Premier League goalscoring charts.

Behind him is Everton’s Romelu Lukaku in those charts, with the Belgian also in fine form and breaking records of his own this year.

That continued on Saturday afternoon in the 1-1 draw with Norwich City as he broke and equalled some records of his own.

His goal was his seventh goal in seven games in all competitions, and his sixth in six Premier League games, the latter making him the first Everton player to do so.

He also became the first Everton player to score in seven consecutive games in all competitions in 40 years, as he equalled the record set by Bob Latchford in 1975.

Indeed, it has been an impressive 2015 in general, and his goal took him to 28 for the calendar year, which saw him equal the record previously set by Adrian Heath.

Impressive work from Lukaku then, who in this kind of form, might have his eye on Jamie Vardy’s new record, as well as setting some of his own.
