Lukaku has been in good form for Everton so far this season and was on target again today. The Belgium international scored twice for the Toffees in their 4-3 defeat to Stoke City at Goodison Park in the Premier League.
Former Everton striker Lineker was following the match, and he was impressed with the 22-year-old’s heroics.
2 more goals for Lukaku. He's turning into a goal-scoring machine.— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) December 28, 2015
