How many goals does Lukaku have to score before he gets a chance at Chelsea? 17 Premier League strikes wasn't enough last term.

He's got five already for Everton - in just seven appearances. The Belgian international is targeting a place in Belgium's stacked squad for next summer's World Cup, and he's going the right way about it.

The 6ft 3in forward marries his unique physical gifts with a eye for goal - but he's not just a target man. Against West Ham we saw his full repertoire - goals, lay-offs, through balls, flick-ons.

This 20-year-old might just be the most complete young striker in world football.
