Red hot Lukaku bags brace in Everton's 4-0 win

Calvert-Lewin's maiden Premier League goal put the hosts ahead early on, though an injury to Morgan Schneiderlin resulted in a stuttering display from the Toffees.

But after the striker's double in Everton's 4-0 win over Hull City on Saturday, Koeman's stance appears to have changed. Lukaku was not finished there, though, doubling his tally in the final minute of stoppage time after latching onto Omar Elabdellaoui's terrible back-pass.

Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone was controversially sent off for a foul on Idrissa Gueye in the second half and Everton ran riot in the closing stages.

However, there was no doubting his commitment to the cause on the pitch as his 20th and 21st goals of the season, both in stoppage time, made him the first Everton striker to reach that tally since Gary Lineker in the 1986-86 season.

The Belgium worldwide has stated his decision to not sign a contract extension at Goodison Park.

His double on Saturday, with both goals in added time, may not have been the decisive factor in putting the Toffees level on points with fifth-placed Arsenal, but it at least showed his professionalism can not be called into question.


Hull remain in the relegation zone and Marco Silva's team are three points from safety with nine games left to beat the drop.

Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo signed Lukaku for Chelsea in 2011 before the player was moved on when Jose Mourinho came back to the club, joining Everton for £28million.

A calf injury to Morgan Schneiderlin was the one downside of the day and the influential midfielder is likely to miss the Merseyside derby at Anfield immediately after the global break.

"The decision of the referee about the red card was too harsh I believe".

Everton took control when Enner Valencia scored within a minute of coming off the bench after being set up by Lukaku's lobbed assist. Lukaku still found time to find the net again by exploiting a defensive mix-up.
