Romelu Lukaku scored Everton’s second goal to clinch the game for the Blues away at Leicester City 2-0. His strong running got him past Foxes captain Wes Morgan, before he turned and duped Marcin Wasilewski and goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to score.

After the game, manager Ronald Koeman spoke of the Belgian forward -

“That's one of his big qualities. It's a one against one situation, he is strong, he is fast and if he gets that chance of being one against one with the goalkeeper, normally he will score.

“The message to him at half-time was to tell him that sometimes he runs too much (out wide) and that he needed to stay up front, stay between the two centre-backs because when we have crosses, he needs to be in the box.

“He's that type of striker who can score from crosses. You need to be in the box to do that. Mirallas and Lennon are different players.”
