The Belgian played a decisive role in the Toffees coming from two down to win 3-2 against West Brom last night.
Everton manager Roberto Martinez has lauded striker Romelu Lukaku after the powerful Belgian striker played a decisive role in a 3-2 win for his side against West Brom last night, The Daily Mail reports.
The Toffees were starring down the barrel just after half-time, trailing 2-0 to the hosts after goals from Saido Berahino and Craig Dawson put the Baggies into the ascendancy.
However, Lukaku helped to rally the Merseyside outfit with a rip-roaring second half display, scoring twice and creating Arouna Kone’s goal to see the visitors leave The Hawthorns with an invaluable three points.
Martinez has claimed that the former Chelsea frontman has all the attributes to be a world-beater after he inspired his side to a comeback.
“Romelu can achieve anything he wants,” The Daily Mail quote the former Wigan Athletic boss as saying.
“He's got that unique strength of being the man that the team needs. He has got an elite brain. In the second half, he has got two goals, an assist and he made a real difference.”
Lukaku has been blighted by inconsistency since penning a permanent deal with the Goodison Park outfit last summer, but has scored four goals in seven Premier League outings so far this term.
The latest win means Everton are unbeaten in their last six games, with Martinez’s men starting to play some excellent free-flowing football.
It will be a big test for the Toffees over the next couple of weeks however, with crunch fixtures against Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal coming up.
