Manchester United host Everton on Super Sunday this weekend - but how has Romelu Lukaku's goalscoring form compared with his former employers?

Everton collected £75m plus add-ons for the Belgian in August but failed to replace him with a similar out-and-out striker, opting to re-sign Wayne Rooney and bring in Barcelona graduate Sandro Ramirez.

Having moved in the opposite direction, former United captain Rooney has scored both of Everton's goals, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin has only hit two shots on target and Ramirez has failed to register one shot on goal.

In contrast, Lukaku has hit the ground running in Manchester red, scoring twice as many goals as his former club - netting four in as many games.

Lukaku's striking superiority over the entire Everton team extends to scoring more goals from fast breaks, taking more shots on target and having a superior shot conversion rate.
