We take a look at the five players in question who have seen their ratings plunge this campaign:
Romelu Lukaku – Everton
2013/14 Rating – 7.31
2014/15 Rating – 6.75
Lukaku was excellent on loan with the Toffees from Chelsea last season. His performances have significantly dropped since making the move to Goodison Park permanent however, and such is the importance of his goals, the Merseyside outfit are struggling mid-table this campaign.
The Belgian was Everton’s top-scorer during his loan-spell, which prompted the club to sign the striker on a permanent deal for a club-record £28m.
The Chelsea flop is failing miserably to live up to such a huge price-tag, but at still just 21-years-old, there is hope he can start to deliver the goods once again.
