Romelu Lukaku reacts on Twitter after Everton's defeat to Leicester City

Everton Goodison 3

Romelu Lukaku scored in Everton's 3-2 loss against Leicester City.

Romelu Lukaku has tweeted about his disappointment after Everton were beaten 3-2 by Leicester City on Saturday.

Although the Belgian striker continued his fine scoring run in the contest, his goal was scant consolation as Everton failed to pick up the three points.

Leicester made the Toffees pay for making some simple defensive errors in the contest, and Lukaku says that the whole team are now determined to bounce back in their next fixture.

“Dissapointed [sic] with loss of today.. On to the next game and we will work hard to make sure enjoy our game on boxing day,” he posted on social media.

In the match, Everton dominated possession but they were unable to show the same ruthless edge that Leicester did.

The Foxes took the lead through Riyad Mahrez, and after that goal Everton always faced an uphill task to get back into the match.

Although Lukaku did briefly level the scores, Leicester went on to show why they are sitting at the top of the Premier League table.

Claudio Ranieri’s men netted again through Mahrez, before Shinji Okazaki extended their lead.

Although Everton did pull one back through Kevin Mirallas it was not enough, and the Toffees now sit in 10th place in the standings, with the pressure mounting on manager Roberto Martinez.
