The Belgian striker stayed hot with another double for Everton on Saturday, putting him in elite company alongside some iconic forwards
Romelu Lukaku has put his name alongside some of the Premier League’s greatest strikers after another brace.
The Belgian striker netted twice late on for Everton on Saturday, helping the Toffees cruise past Hull City 4-0.
Chelsea kill off the title race
The goals were Lukaku’s 20th and 21st of the season, moving him two clear of Tottenham’s Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot. They also put him in some elite company among strikers in Premier League history.
