Did Everton striker Romelu Lukaku predict who would assist his goal against West Ham?

Romelu Lukaku and Jan Vertonghen Belgium

This is proper Twilight Zone stuff and very spooky from Lukaku...

Some things in life are pretty much a certainty, Jamie Vardy scoring in the Premier League and Jose Mourinho getting into trouble.

And there's one that you may have forgotten about, the fact that Romelu Lukaku has now scored in seven consecutive games against West Ham United.

Now that is an absolute stat. And he scored that seventh goal against the Hammers during a 1-1 draw at Upton Park on Saturday to cancel out Manuel Lanzini's wonderful strike.

While Lukaku scoring against West Ham is nothing to be overly surprised about, it turns out that that the Belgian predicted the supplier of his goal... sort of!

Before the game, Lukaku put a picture of himself and Everton midfielder and speedster Gerard Deulofeu on Twitter, giving him a rather interesting nickname.

And about 24 hours or so later, Deulofeu managed to provide Lukaku with the ball that allowed him to dance past Adrian and slot home his goal.

Psychic powers confirmed? Pretty much!
