After scoring 17 Premier League goals on loan at West Brom last season, he was expected to be part of Chelsea's first-team plans this season.

But Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was happy to let the striker go out on loan again, and Lukaku opted to go to Merseyside for first-team football.

And asked if he felt he had a point to prove, the 20-year-old said: "Yes, because I think after last year, I deserve a chance - like I did the year before, before I went to West Brom.

"I thought I deserved that chance, I went to West Brom on loan and did well. This year, I have a point to prove first to myself, that I can do it again, and then to Chelsea, to show that I can be number one over there as well."

Lukaku insists there were no mixed emotions about Everton's 1-0 win over Chelsea at the weekend.

"It was a great win on Saturday and a great performance. I'm very happy we won," he said.

"It was a good solution to come to Everton and I felt a lot of confidence with the manager. I want to do better than I did last year, learn new things and help my new team-mates.

"It was my choice to go out on loan. I want to play as much as possible. I have set a goals target for this season - but I'm keeping it personal."

errible night all round. This was a team there for the taking yet I fail to recall their 'keeper making a notable save. Sterling decided to have his worst game ever, Coutinho only provided about two good passes all game and Balotelli continues to frustrate. The less said about the set piece defending the better. Daniel Sturridge cannot came back soon enough. The lack of a real threat in the final third is so surprising, no killer pass, not testing...
