Can West Ham stop nemesis Lukaku?

26 Sep 2018

Manchester United striker has nine goals in nine PL matches against Hammers and is on an away scoring run

West Ham United's recent run of form, with four points from their last two matches, will be tested when they face their nemesis on Saturday.

Romelu Lukaku loves playing West Ham. He scored in his first nine appearances for Everton against the Hammers in all competitions. 

In his last nine Premier League meetings with them he has plundered nine goals for Everton and Manchester United.

He only failed to register in one of those league matches, for Everton in April 2017, but made up for it with two goals in his most recent match, Man Utd's 4-0 win in August last year.

Happy travels

Manuel Pellegrini's side have home advantage but it appears that playing on the road suits Lukaku more.

All the Belgian's four Premier League goals this season have been scored away from home.

A strike at the London Stadium would make Lukaku only the fourth player to score in his side’s first four away fixtures in a PL campaign.

Thierry Henry was the first, for Arsenal in 2001/02, followed Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool in 2013/14) and Sergio Aguero (for Manchester City in 2014/15).
