Everton 4 Hull City 0: Lukaku dominates headlines again with late double

Much of the talk before the game surrounded the reception Lukaku would receive from the Everton fans after the striker indicated earlier in the week that he would not sign a new contract.

Having rejected the most lucrative contract offer in Everton's history, worth a reported £140,000-per-week, Lukaku this week admitted the club's failure to compete for major trophies and attract top players was likely to convince him to leave.

"Then you are talking about Champions League and whatever types of games".

It's up to the club to get the deal over the line'.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has admitted that he is concerned about the calf injury sustained by midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin during his side's 4-0 win over Hull City this afternoon.

"If I look to this season so far, I think we can make the next step next season".

Everyone see the difference between this season and last and it is impossible to do this in one transfer window in one season. 'If we can move on and get in what we want to make the team really strong, I think we can battle with them, yes. At the end of the day, the big aim in football is to win as many titles as you can, so we need to try more, give a bit more.

However, a harsh decision by referee Paul Tierney to dismiss Tom Huddlestone for a lunge on Idrissa Gueye enabled Everton to wrap-up the points in style late on, although Koeman acknowledged that Hull presented a tough challenge. Everybody knows you can't do this in one year.

The Belgian is now clear at the top in the race for the Premier League's Golden Boot, with two more goals than Tottenham Hotspur's injured Harry Kane, after extending his hot streak to finish off relegation-haunted Hull at Goodison Park.

The 23-year-old Barkley is a product of the Everton youth development system.
