Given his form on loan for West bromwich Albion, scenes of celebration such as this are expected to become a regular occurence for Romelu Lukaku at Chelsea.

When he joined Chelsea from Belgian club Anderlecht in the summer of 2011, Romelu Lukaku was somewhat of an unknown quantity to fans and journalists alike.

Sure, we'd heard the scouting reports and seen the YouTube footage, but how good was the then 18-year-old?

Lukaku was a mystery—until he joined West Bromwich Albion on loan, that is.

His 13 Premier League goals for the Baggies make his 2011 transfer fee seem like loose change for Chelsea. He has come of age, living up to the hype that has long surrounded him.

Given his form in the Midlands, it's no wonder Lukaku has suggested he would like to remain at the Hawthorns for another season as he continues his development (via Daily Mail).
