Lukaku is spending a second season away from Chelsea after scoring 17 Premier League goals with West Brom during the 2012/13 campaign.

He was wanted back at West Brom this term, but opted for a move to Everton and scored the winner on his debut as a substitute against West Ham last weekend.

The 20-year-old was handed his first league start for Everton against Newcastle on Monday night and he scored twice in the first half, in addition to creating Ross Barkley's goal.

The Belgium international enjoyed his Goodison Park experience and is hoping to help Everton to as high a finish in the table as possible.

"I loved it," Lukaku told Sky Sports. "I've been waiting a long time. My team-mates have helped me feel at ease and they kept talking to me.

"I was focused. We did the job, we won and we are still unbeaten. We have to continue like this.

"We started well. In the second half, we missed chances, so we still have to work and I think we can improve on it.

"I want to improve on last year and help my team-mates, and hopefully we can end as high as possible in the league.

"We want to improve and they have helped me to improve. I will keep both feet grounded and try to improve every game."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
