Lukaku Hungry For More Goals

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Romelu Lukaku is focused on taking his scoring run into the toughest week of Everton's season so far.

Lukaku plundered his eighth goal in nine games against Stoke City on Saturday as the Blues ran out 4-0 winners.

But the Toffees are likely to face sterner examination in their next two games, at Manchester United and Arsenal.

"I was very pleased to score again," the Belgian hitman told evertontv. "It wasn't the easiest game for me but I did my best and I was lucky to score a goal today.

"It (the coming week) is a very nice challenge. If you want to be in the top four you have to make the best of it and we will work hard to get ready for the games and then hopefully get good results."

Should on-loan Lukaku help Everton gain positive outcomes at Old Trafford and the Emirates, it could also be perceived as providing a boost to his parent club, Chelsea.

But he said: "I just want to win those games, I will do my best to help my team to win and hopefully it's by scoring goals.

"I think sometimes about my parent club, obviously, but I am here to help Everton and help them perform and if we win, it's better for us."
