No matter how he plays overall, Lukaku will score goals and point to his record whatever people say.
Stats rule football now.
He will score goals, but will he score the important ones?
The biggest statistical argument against him is how rarely his goals affexted our overall result last season. Last night tallied up with this. He scored once in a 2-1 defeat, rather than twice in a 2-2 draw.
A £75m-£90m striker should not miss those chances and they'd have veen level and the momentum would have been with them. It could have changed the game.
