Everton striker Romelu Lukaku has been named EA SPORTS Player of the Month for March after scoring four goals in three games.


The Belgian is arguably the most dangerous striker in the Premier League currently, having scored 10 goals in his last seven appearances, including four goals in March against Tottenham, West Brom and Hull.


"I'm really happy," Lukaku said. 

"It gives me another boost. I'm playing well at the minute and the team is doing really well."


After scoring in the 3-2 loss at Tottenham, Lukaku bagged another and claimed an assist as the Toffees overcame West Brom 3-0 before netting twice and adding another assist in the 4-0 thrashing of Hull.


Lukaku ended up with the most combined votes from a panel of experts, Premier League captains and fans to claim the prize ahead of Bournemouth pair Artur Boruc and Joshua King, Southampton's Nathan Redmond, Crystal Palace defender Mamadou Sakho and Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.

Everton v Hull City - Premier League

The 23-year-old's brilliant form has coincided with an upturn in fortunes for Everton, who are now just two points behind Manchester United in the race for a European spot next year. They are six points behind fourth place Liverpool and a win at Anfield in the Merseyside derby on Saturday would see them enter the race for the top four as realistic competitors. 


Lukaku is now at 21 Premier League goals for the season and could end the campaign as the competition's top scorer, especially given that second place Harry Kane is currently sidelined due to injury as well as Alexis Sanchez still sitting three goals behind on 18.
