Rom Bags Double At Dixies

Romelu Lukaku completed a double at The Dixies by being crowned Everton’s Player of the Season and the Players’ Player of the Season for 2016/17.

The Belgian has been in scintillating form throughout this term, firing 25 goals in all competitions for the Blues.
 
Lukaku is also currently in pole position to land the Premier League’s Golden Boot, with 24 league strikes - three more than closest rival, Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane - in the league with two games remaining.

He has also overtaken Duncan Ferguson to become the Club’s all-time top goalscorer in the Premier League era.

After receiving his second accolade of the evening, which was presented by manager Ronald Koeman, Lukaku admitted it had been the best season in his career on a personal level. He was also keen to deflect the praise on teammates who had helped him win the night’s top award.

“As a young guy I just try to learn every day and give my best,” Lukaku said. “Sometimes there are ups and downs but it’s always with the best intentions. I want to help my teammates win and I have tried my best this season.

“I think everybody is playing at a high level and I look at the improvement of Ross, who inspires me day in day out.

“Gana came in from a team that got relegated and being a main man in midfield has been impressive. Also Jags, he was out the starting line-up but has led the team.”
