Recently an idea of the quality of the finish produced by Romelu Lukaku with his weak foot has been provided.
Lukaku’s season at Chelsea
Romelu Lukaku would, of course, return to Chelsea for the summer after two super seasons with Inter Milan, the last of which saw him clinch the Serie A title.
The Belgian returned to the Premier League with a point to prove after his poor finish at Manchester United.
And, so far, Lukaku is certainly showing that he has improved a lot since his last stint in England.
The Belgian, despite the fact that Chelsea has a torrid streak of matches that has already seen him face Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and Juventus, has already scored three of six in the Premier League and one of two in the Champions League. League.
And, given that Chelsea’s streak of games will be much easier after the international break, we are likely to see the 28-year-old improve on his already decent goal tally for the Blues.
Lukaku beats Messi and Haaland
However, even before his move to Chelsea, Lukaku has always been an excellent finisher.
At Everton, he scored 87 in 166, at West Brom 17 in 38, at Inter Milan 64 in 95 and, at Manchester United, despite the Belgian’s season at Old Trafford largely regarded as a failure, still would score 42 in 96.
Now, a potential insight has been provided as to why Lukaku has been such a deadly finisher throughout his career.
Football.london, citing statisticians who scored, they have analyzed fifteen men who together have registered almost 3,500 goals, of which more than 3,000 come from their feet, to evaluate their weak footsteps.
And for the most part, those whose strong foot is the left generally score pretty low when it comes to the percentage of goals they’ve scored on the weaker foot.
It is explained that five of the fifteen players consulted were left-handed. Of those 15 players, four of the bottom five were left-handed players, when ranked by percentage of goals scored with the weakest foot.
Gareth Bale scored just 12.1% with his right, Lionel Messi 14.3% and Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund 14.7%.
Lukaku, meanwhile, has scored nearly 31 percent of his goals with his weaker foot.
