Cristiano Ronaldo was a rising sensation during his time at Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson.

Before his departure to Spanish giants Real Madrid in 2009, CR7 scored 84 Premier League goals in 196 appearances for his team, some of them really when it mattered the most.

But Romelu Lukaku, who has been a pleasure to watch this Premier League season, has now scored as many goals (84) as Ronaldo but with fewer appearances (181).

Against Burnley on Saturday, Lukaku again got on the scoresheet to take his tally of goals 24 – the most in the English top flight.
