Romelu Lukaku has enjoyed the perfect start to life at Manchester United, following his summer move to Old Trafford.

Lukaku, the former Everton forward, has scored seven goals in his first seven Premier League matches for the Red Devils, which means he has already moved up to 14th in the ranking of goals netted in a debut season by a Manchester United player in the Premier League era.

Research from Grosvenorsport.com reveals Lukaku’s goals per game ratio of 1.0 (seven goals in seven games) is the best of any United player in their debut season at Old Trafford, and he is well on the way to continuing that incredible run. Robin van Persie and Ruud van Nistelrooy sit first and second respectively in the goal charts with 26 and 23 scored in their debut campaigns, and if Lukaku keeps up his current goals per game ratio he will undoubtedly break the record for number of goals scored in a debut season for Manchester United.

So, how does Lukaku compare with other Man United players in terms of his goals per game ratio? The Belgium forward has the best ratio since the start of the Premier League era, and you can click the right arrow, above, to discover the top 18 players ranked by their debut season goals per game ratio for the Red Devils…
