His total league goals are 29 and sure for him, he has earned them all. He became the prime nomination for the Premier League golden boot award following the team’s win.

Romelu Lukaku performance 2016 -17 EPL
This centre forward gave a tough game last year. He was still close to being the top goal scorer, just before Harry Kane scored 4 amazing goals and swooped the trophy off. This landed him in the very second position.
This year’s tournament is already here and it seems like Romelu Lukaku will be going on after the English Premier League goals 2017/18 this time. His total league goals were 25.
Alexis Sanchez performance 2016 -17 EPL
Another talented player of the lot, who was the second runner-up for the crown of best number of goals in the session of 2016- 2017 is Alexis Sanchez. He scored 24 goals, which was one short of Romelu Lukaku. Had he played better, it could have been a tie between the two great athletes.
But for now, He stays in the third position. Maybe the upcoming season will bring a whole lot of luck for him.

Sure, the player of the year award was not won by him but his spirit has to be saluted. And this season, it looks really good for him in terms of techniques energy and zeal.

The best EPL goal ever
This award for the Best Goal was awarded to Manchester United striker and one of the all-time top goalscorers of Premier League Wayne Rooney. He scored his goal against Manchester City at Old Trafford. The match was held on 12 February 2011. After goals from Nani on 41 minutes and Manchester City David Silva on 65 minutes, Rooney made an awesome overhead volley kick that beat City goalkeeper Joe Hart and he scored.
His goal for that match was the last of a 2–1 win for United in the Manchester derby. Nine other goals from eight players were short-listed for the public vote for Best Goal. The nominations were –
♦ Matt Le Tissier, Southampton v Newcastle United, 1993–94
♦ Matt Le Tissier, Blackburn Rovers v Southampton, 1994–95
♦ Tony Yeboah, Leeds United v Liverpool, 1995–96
♦ David Beckham, Wimbledon v Manchester United, 1996–97
♦ Eric Cantona, Manchester United v Sunderland, 1996–97
♦ Paolo Di Canio, West Ham United v Wimbledon, 1999–2000
♦ Thierry Henry, Arsenal v Manchester United, 2000–01
♦ Dennis Bergkamp, Newcastle United v Arsenal, 2001–02
♦ Alan Shearer, Newcastle United v Everton, 2002–03
Eventually, Wayne Rooney’s goal won with 26% of the public vote. That obviously ended up beating Bergkamp’s goal against Newcastle into second place which had 19% of the public votes. At the third position, Henry’s strike for Arsenal against Manchester United was there with 15% of the public votes.
Manchester United’s manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s comment on Rooney’s goal at that moment was “I’ve never seen anything like it, that’s for sure. Absolutely stunning. Unbelievable. The thing about that goal is that Nani’s goal will be completely forgotten and it was a fantastic goal. His first touch takes it around the defender and he rolled it into the net. It was an unbelievable goal but no-one in their right sense will even talk about it!”
So, these were the top goals throughout the history of EPL and we are sure that there will be more to come which will make be stairways to create some amazing Premier League records.
