Man Utd ace Lukaku matches Drogba's goals record

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has matched the goals record of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.

Lukaku moved level with Drogba on 104 Premier League goals after netting twice in Manchester United's 2-0 win at Burnley on Saturday.

Yet the 25-year-old has made 224 appearances - 30 less than the 254 it took Didier Drogba to reach his mark.

Drogba scored all of his goals across two spells at Chelsea, between 2004-2012 and 2014-2015, while Lukaku's have come during a loan spell at West Brom, four seasons at Everton and a year at Old Trafford.

Lukaku and Drogba are joint-26th on the all-time Premier League goalscoring chart, with 28 players having scored 100 or more goals.
