Barkley and Lukaku react on Twitter to Everton's 3-0 victory

Everton Goodison

Everton's goal-scorers have reacted on social media after their win against Southampton.

Everton defeated Southampton 3-0 on Saturday and their two-goal hero Romelu Lukaku was quick to celebrate on social media after his impressive performance.

The Belgium international opened the scoring against the Saints in the 22nd minute and doubled the Toffees’ advantage on the stroke of half-time.

That second goal killed the game as a contest and Everton ultimately grabbed a third when midfielder Ross Barkley scored with six minutes of normal-time remaining.

Everton have started the new Premier League season well, building on the 2-2 draw with Watford on the opening weekend.

After the match, Lukaku took to Twitter to write, “Great win today! On to the next one!”

Barkley also had his say, hailing the team performance in a succinct message that read, “Brilliant all round team performance today.”

Barkley has been fantastic so far this season and Everton fans will be hopeful the young England international can keep that going for the entire campaign and finally show what he is capable of on a consistent basis.

With a couple more additions Everton could well be challenging for Europe again this season, although keeping hold of their exciting youngsters is even more important for the long-term fortunes of the club.
