History was made on Wednesday evening when Romelu Lukaku scored twice during Manchester United's 3-1 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the Premier League.

The goals took the Belgian striker into the Top 20 All-time Premier League scorers, knocking former Liverpool and Birmingham City  Emile Heskey out of 20th spot. He joined former United striker turned TV presenter Dion Dublin on 111 goals and two short of well, you'll have to have a go at the quiz below to find out.

Lukaku has enjoyed a fine goal-scoring record in England since arriving in 2011. He has scored goals at every club he's been at - Chelsea, West Bromwich Albion, Everton and United. He joined United from Everton in 2017 and this is now the seventh consecutive season that Lukaku has reached double figures of Premier League goals.

Anderlecht gave Lukaku his first professional contract and he scored 41 goals in 98 appearances to attract the interest of several of Europe's top clubs and he opted to join Chelsea.

There have been times when some have questioned his ability but he has enjoyed an upturn in form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho. Lukaku has earned his place among some of the Premier League's most deadly finishers and realistically he can climb up that ladder even higher. Coincidentally, there are three people in the top 20 list who are still playing so there is likely to be some significant movement in the coming seasons.
