Rom: Key Stage Of Our Season

Record-breaker Romelu Lukaku says Everton are fully focused on taking maximum points from back-to-back home games before the March international break.

The Blues’ only defeat in their past 10 Premier League matches came at second-placed Spurs last weekend and they now tackle West Bromwich Albion, the side in eighth, a place and four points below the Toffees in the table, on Saturday.

Ronald Koeman’s men then welcome relegation-threatened Hull City to Merseyside a week later. 

 
And Lukaku, who surpassed Duncan Ferguson’s previous Club-best tally of 60 Premier League goals by netting in the 3-2 reverse at White Hart Lane, says the two fixtures present a golden opportunity for Everton to both strengthen their grip on seventh and close the gap on the sides above them. 

Speaking exclusively to evertonfc.com, the Belgian said: “We’re happy for the moment but we have to move on forward like we do all the time. We want to win games and that’s the mentality that I have. 
 
“I’m a striker and my job is to score goals, but I want to win games. 
 
“I’m focused on winning the next game. The loss against Tottenham was disappointing because [Manchester] United dropped points and I thought maybe that was the time for us to catch them up. 

“But we have two home games now and we have to get a good result against a difficult side on Saturday. 

“But we’ll work hard today, work harder tomorrow, harder the day after and we’ll be ready for the weekend."
