Everton fans react on Twitter to Romelu Lukaku's display against Watford

Romelu Lukaku could not stop Everton from falling to a defeat against Watford.

Everton supporters have accused Romelu Lukaku of giving up hope, after he put in a poor performance against Watford.

Lukaku has suggested that he wants to play Champions League football in the near future, and his performances since he made those comments have been below the quality required.

The 22-year-old forward has not looked himself in recent weeks, and his display against Watford was arguably the most ineffective of his season to date.

Lukaku simply could not get into the game, and when he was presented with a chance, he passed up the opportunity.

Although Lukaku has unquestionably had a great season, his attitude has drawn criticism with some Everton fans on social media site Twitter.

Lukaku is still likely to be one of the most in-demand forwards in Europe over the summer transfer window, as he has scored with great frequency this term.

The Belgian international’s great form has not helped Everton mount a push for Europe, as they were expected to do, though.

The Toffees’ draw with Watford has left them sitting in 14th place in the Premier League table.
