GRAPHIC

Romelu Lukaku struck his 100th Premier League goal as Manchester United claimed a 2-0 win over Swansea on Saturday.

The Belgian's deflected opener was his 15th Premier League goal of the season and helped Jose Mourinho's side consolidate their place in the table behind leaders Manchester City.

Lukaku is the 28th player to score 100 Premier League goals and he reached the landmark in his 216th appearance, making him the 12th quickest, just ahead of Didier Drogba (220).

At 24 years and 322 days old, Lukaku is the fifth-youngest player to reach 100 Premier League goals, behind only Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Wayne Rooney and Harry Kane.

His total is spread across three clubs. Lukaku did not score a Premier League goal for Chelsea, but he hit 17 on loan at West Brom in 2012/13 and 68 for Everton in addition to his 15 for Manchester United.
