Everton’s Chelsea loanee Romelu Lukaku: ‘I watch every minute of every Premier League game’
Romelu Lukaku says he watches every minute of every Premier League game in an effort to improve his own game.
The Belgium international, currently on loan at Everton from Chelsea, wants to become the best striker in the league, so he likes to see what the competition are up to.
The 20-year-old conducts his marathon scouting sessions after he finishes training for the day.
He said: “It’s true that I watch every single game in the league – 90 minutes. I take my time to study and to learn other strikers’ movements and to learn about other defenders. I take my time.
“Really, I want to be one of the best in this league so you can only learn from the best by watching the best.
“After training I go home and record every game. I have a satellite and I just watch the games.
“My aim is to go down as one of the greatest. That’s why I’m at Everton. I’m here to help the team, the team is here to help me.”
Everton’s game against West Ham will make for particularly pleasant viewing this week.
He headed a late winner but was knocked unconscious in the process and didn’t remember scoring the goal.
