Romelu Lukaku can fire Man United to Premier League glory and this stat proves it!

Stat Attack | Posted on by
With Manchester United reportedly agreeing a £75 million fee for Everton forward Romelu Lukaku, our exclusive stats at Oulala.com show the Belgian is exactly what United need to mount a serious title challenge next season. 
Our stats team have analysed the conversion rates of all 20 Premier League clubs last season. Chelsea were top with 85 of their 406 shots converted into goals (20.9%). Arsenal sat second, converting 77 of their 387 shots (19.9%). While Everton and Liverpool (18.5%) were joint third.
Shockingly, Manchester United were all the way down in 17th. Jose Mourinho's side scored 59 goals from 414 shots, a conversion rate of just 13 per cent. 

Our stats also show that Romelu Lukaku scored 25 goals from 110 shots, a conversion rate of 22.7%. A massive improvement on Manchester United's main striker last season, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who netted 17 goals from 115 shots, a disappointing conversion rate of just 14.8%. 
While Manchester United proved a difficult side to beat last season, they lacked the X factor in attack to turn draws into wins. With an impressive conversion rate of 22.7%, Romelu Lukaku's killer instinct in front of goal is just what Man United need.
