Romelu Lukaku praises three Everton teammates after West Brom win

Everton picked up a 3-2 victory over West Bromwich Albion on Monday night.

Everton match-winner Romelu Lukaku has told the club's official website that he was impressed with the performances of Ross Barkley, Arouna Kone and Gerard Deulofeu against West Bromwich Albion.

Lukaku scored twice as Everton came back from 2-0 down to beat the Baggies, with Kone bagging the Merseyside club's other goal in the contest. 

It was a showing which highlighted the attacking quality that Roberto Martinez has at his disposal this season, and Lukaku was keen to praise the collective effort after the match. 

“I thought Ross, Arouna and Gerard  all did really well - and I just tried to score and create goals, so I’m really happy with the win and with the goals," he said. 

Lukaku's double for Everton took his total for the season to six goals, and he also claimed an assist for Kone's strike with a lovely pass.

His display was outstanding, but he is correct to praise other attacking members in the squad, as there were a number of excellent performances put in.

Not many teams will score three against a West Brom side managed by Tony Pulis this season, and it is testament to the creativity that Everton have within their ranks that they were able to threaten so effectively.

The win has pushed the Toffees up to fifth in the Premier League table, with optimism starting to build at Goodison Park.
