There’s a reason Man United paid so much money to bag Romelu Lukaku this summer.
The £75million forked out for the Belgian already looks like savvy business after three goals in as many Premier League games in a Red Devils’ shirt.
Next up for Lukaku is a trip to the bet365 Stadium to take on Mark Hughes’ Stoke, and it’s a ground on which Lukaku has previous.
On 6 February 2016 Lukaku netted the first goal in a 3-0 win, becoming the first Everton player to score 20 goals in consecutive seasons since Graeme Sharp in the Eighties.
Two months earlier he’d found the net twice against Stoke in a 4-3 loss.

Jose Mourinho won’t be the only manager expecting big things from Lukaku this weekend.
A whopping 63% of you have picked him in the traditional Dream Team Season game – a real reflection on how much of an asset he’s been so far – which makes him by far and away the most popular player.
He’s an expensive purchase, but if you play Dream Team Weekender then you don’t have to worry about a budget.
Lukaku has 21 Dream Team points so far but it should be even higher after seeing his penalty saved against Leicester last time around.
Don’t let that blip put you off picking him, particularly with United looking a menacing force going forward and the assist machine that is Henrikh Mkhitaryan pulling the strings.
So what are you waiting for? Get Lukaku in your Weekender team for your chance to win that precious £20k jackpot.
