Man Utd striker becomes youngest Premier League centurion from overseas with 100th goal on Saturday

Romelu Lukaku's goal in Manchester United's 2-0 win over Swansea City on Saturday was the striker's 100th in the Premier League.

He is the 28th different player to reach a century of goals in the competition, doing so at a record age for an overseas player.

At 24 years and 322 days old, Lukaku is the youngest player from outside England to achieve the feat, and the fifth-youngest overall. 

Youngest players to reach 100 goals
Player Age at goal 100
Michael Owen 23 years, 133 days
Robbie Fowler 23 years, 282 days
Wayne Rooney 24 years, 99 days
Harry Kane 24 years, 191 days
Romelu Lukaku 24 years, 322 days

Lukaku, who is also the first Belgian to join the "100 Club", did so in 216 appearances for Chelsea, West Bromwich Albion, Everton and Man Utd.

That ranks him 12th in terms of matches taken, ahead of notable names such as Didier Drogba, 220 appearances, and Wayne Rooney, 247.

Alan Shearer's 124 matches were the quickest, ahead of the 141 it took Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur this season.
