Romelu Lukaku since coming to the English Premier League to some people has lived up to expectations, but to some, he is yet to prove he is that striker that can truly win his team trophies, that player a team can depend on to take them out of difficult moments.
He is big, strong and great finisher, put still poor with his control of the ball and his ability to bring others into play. He uses his strength and pace to his advantage especially in front of goal, but considered by many football pundits as that one striker that cannot deliver when a manager needs him to, as his touches are far way too amateurish for a striker in the Premier League.
Also, Remolu Lukaku has been labelled small team player, as he flourish more often against smaller opponents and disappears in the bigger games, where he usually struggles.
