Everton ace Lukaku: What I need to do to reach level of Suarez, Aguero, Benzema…

Romelu Lukaku is eyeing more match-winning displays to become a bonafide superstar of the game.

There is no doubting the Everton striker's sublime scoring record in recent years but he feels that perhaps his game is not quite at the level of some of the world's top quality strikers.

In a candid one-on-one interview for Sky Sports with Arsenal and Barcelona great Thierry Henry, Lukaku identified what he needs to do to join the absolute elite.

"More match-winning performances," he said.

"For a striker of my ability I score the goals that I score, but I need to create goals.

"The likes of [Sergio] Aguero, [Luis] Suarez, [Karim] Benzema, [Robert] Lewandowski, they can create a goal out of nowhere and that's the thing that I need to do.

"In training I'm with the manager trying to put in situations like that so it becomes more natural. I have it in my locker but it needs to come out more."
