Romelu Lukaku has now entered the top 20 on the Premier League’s list of all time top goalscorers, following his second goal against Crystal Palace.
Lukaku doubled United’s lead with a well-taken acrobatic strike, and is now level with ex United striker Dion Dublin on 111 Premier League goals. The 25 year old is now 149 league goals away from legendary striker Alan Shearer’s record tally.
The Belgian has now scored ten Premier League goals this season, despite struggling for form by his own high goal-standards. He has been second choice striker since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken charge, but is staking his claim tonight with Marcus Rashford among the substitutes following his ankle injury sustained against Liverpool on Sunday.
Lukaku had earlier scored an excellent opener, finishing a move started by an adventurous run by Luke Shaw.
