Romelu Lukaku: I’ve improved on everything this year

It’s been a fine season for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgium international has been tipped to reach world-class levels of netting prowess since his teenage years but has taken an almighty step towards that quality bracket this season, leading the Premier League’s scoring charts with 21 goals in 29 appearances.

He’s now just four goals short of setting a new personal best across all competitions, currently standing at 25 from 2015/16, with plenty of football still yet to play.

At the end of March, the 23-year-old picked up the first Player of the Month award of his career after claiming four goals and two assists in just three Premier League appearances, highlighting how his form is only further hotting up as we reach the business end of the campaign.

And the towering striker has now revealed why he’s emerging as arguably the best striker in the Premier League. He feels he’s improved on every aspect of his game, most particularly the quality of goals he’s now scoring.

Lukaku, speaking to EASPORTS.com, said; “I think I’ve proven that I’ve improved every part of my game. I have always been scoring goals and now the quality of goals I am scoring is better. I can now create chances to score for myself, and I have scored a free kick this year too. I have been scoring a lot more headers and my overall finishing has improved a lot. My overall play has improved but I want to give a lot more as I go through my journey in football.

The Everton man also stated; “Physically we’ve been working really hard this year and I feel my fitness levels have been improving throughout the year. I ensure I am focused throughout the game whether that is making a chance for myself or receiving the ball from a teammate to score.”
