Victor Anichebe reacts on Twitter to Romelu Lukaku's 50th Premier League goal

Barkley, Lukaku, Barry

The West Brom striker congratulated the Everton forward on social media.

West Brom forward Victor Anichebe was full of praise for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku on Saturday afternoon.

Indeed, the former Everton man took to Twitter after seeing the Belgian net against Aston Villa during a 4-0 win in the Premier League.

The Toffees ran riot as Aston Villa had nothing for them in response - and Anichebe congratulated Lukaku on social media as it marked his 50th Premier League goal, despite his young years.

As it turns out, however, the West Brom striker got Lukaku's age wrong!

The Everton target man is, in fact, 22 - although he thanked Anichebe for his message all the same. The Belgian is certainly enjoying his football right now under manager Roberto Martinez.

Everton mean business, it seems, especially against lower-ranked opponents. They should be wary of earning the reputation of flat-track bullies but it will matter little to fans how the Toffees earn their wins.

As for Anichebe's West Brom side, they also earned all three points on Saturday, beating Arsenal 2-1 at the weekend.

Everton travel to Bournemouth for their next league clash, while the Baggies face West Ham United at Upton Park.
