Lukaku scores twice for Everton after rejecting new deal

The striker set up a goal and scored twice in stoppage time to wrap up a 4-0 victory over 10-man Hull on Saturday at the end of a week when Lukaku revealed he would not be signing a new contract with the Merseyside club.

The Belgian ace has become Goodison's darling after firing 19 Premier League goals this season.

"The fans love Rom".

Unless it is certain that Diego Costa will leave Chelsea in the summer, I do not see the point of Romelu Lukaku returning to his former club. If he gets that space he will punish the opposition and that's one of his big qualities.

Earlier in the week the Belgium worldwide told the club he would not be signing a new £140,000-a-week contract that would make him the best-paid player in their history as he questioned whether they had the ability to reach the Champions League.

"No matter where you play you want to be remembered".

Dominic Calvert-Lewin squandered a terrific chance in the reverse fixture in December, but the youngster made no mistake on this occasion as he nudged in Tom Davies' cross to give Everton the lead early on.

Hull midfielder Tom Huddlestone was controversially sent off for a foul on Idrissa Gueye in the second half and Everton ran riot in the closing stages.

"We kept the momentum".

"The decision of the referee about the red card was too harsh I believe".

Earlier this week, Lukaku admitted it may be hard for him to go down as one of the game's greatest player due to the limited number of trophies in his cabinet.

"Now we get another opportunity in two weeks to play Liverpool and then Manchester United - the two teams above us". Can we show more ambition, a stronger team, more points? "It decided the game". We didn't deserve this.
