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."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
