Rom Sees Improvement


Romelu Lukaku believes he is now a better player than when he first arrived at Goodison Park.

The striker notched his 16th goal of the season on Sunday as Everton completed their campaign with a straightforward 2-0 win at Hull City.

The tally is one short of the 17 goals he managed during a loan stint with West Bromwich Albion last term.

But the Belgian, who only turns 21 today, insists he has taken giant strides forward since moving to Merseyside last September.

He said: "It's been a good season and personally I think I have improved a lot as a player, I've learned a lot of things and my teammates, manager and staff have helped me since day one to become the player that I am today. But, at my young age, I still have to improve and I've still got a lot to learn, so that's the next step."

Lukaku's second-half strike followed James McCarthy's ninth-minute opener at the KC Stadium as Roberto Martinez's men took their record Premier League points haul to 72.

And the striker added: "It was good because of the way we won. We played a good game and I scored, so I'm very happy to end the season this way.

"I'm very proud of the team's performance."
