Romelu Lukaku Tweets Thanks to Fans After Scoring 50th Goal in 100 Everton Games

Romelu Lukaku Tweets Thanks to Fans After Scoring 50th Goal in 100 Everton Games

Romelu Lukaku took to social media last night to thank fans after he scored his 50th goal in 100 games for Everton.

The Belgian striker hit the equaliser in the Toffees’ 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace at Goodison Park.

He saw previous efforts hit the post and the bar earlier in the match, but cancelled out Scott Dann’s opener for the visitors by tapping home from Gerard Deulofeu’s cross.

The landmark strike took his record to a goal every other game and led manager Roberto Martinez to describe him as a “unique number nine” post-match.

And after receiving tributes to fellow players and fans, Lukaku took to Twitter to thank them for the support they’ve given him:

With his scoring record, Lukaku is sure to attract interest from other clubs and Everton will be hopeful that they can keep him with the January transfer window looming.

The Belgian powerhouse was a club record signing when he moved from Chelsea to Merseyside in a £28million deal last year.

And the Goodison Park outfit would have to see a considerable advance on that figure to have any thoughts about letting Lukaku leave.
