Everton are anxiously awaiting to learn the outcome of Romelu Lukaku’s scan after the Belgium striker limped off during the 4-0 win over Bosnia.
Lukaku grabbed a goal late on for his country, before being replaced minutes later due to a thigh problem: "I felt something but we will see," said the 23-year-old post-match. Regardless, Roberto Martinez may decide against risking the Toffees striker against lowly Gibraltar on Monday with Christian Benteke waiting in the wings. Everton are also running further tests on Phil Jagielka after their skipper left the England camp on Friday, also due to a thigh injury. Oct 8 - 12:15 PM

Romelu Lukaku and Christian Benteke scored each of their club's goals as Everton and Crystal Palace drew 1-1 at Goodison Park on Friday.

Everton began the match looking the better side as their offensive pressure saw them control the majority of the early chances. The Toffees eventually found their break through when they were award a free-kick after Phil Jagielka was fouled just outside the area. Romelu Lukaku made the most of the opportunity as his curling effort flew over the stationary wall and in, leaving goalkeeper Steve Mandanda helpless. Crystal Palace responded just five minutes when Christian Benteke converted a difficult header in the 50th minute. The Eagles then appeared to have grabbed the lead 15 minutes later as Delaney headed in, but the assistant's flag was up. Lukaku's goal, his fifh this season, would go on to prove enough for Everton to end Palace's two-match Premier League unbeaten streak.

Romelu Lukaku owners can breath a sigh of relief after manager Ronald Koeman allayed fears that the forward would miss the weekend.

Lukaku was held out of the club's League Cup loss to Norwich City on Tuesday due to a toe injury that forced him off after scoring against Middlesbrough last weekend. However, Koeman said in his prematch press conference that everything looks set for Lukaku, who is second in the league with four goals, to return this weekend against Bournemouth: "He did training separate to the group today and we expect him to train normally in the morning," he said. "If that happens, he will be fit for the weekend."

Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirmed forward Romelu Lukaku will play no part in Tuesday's match due to a minor injury.

The Belgian forward aggravated a toe problem over the weekend against Middlesbrough, where he recorded a goal and assist in a 3-1 victory to help Everton into second in the Premier League table. Due to the injury, Koeman said he will rest Lukaku during Tuesday's League Cup match with Norwich City. "Romelu is not available, only he from the weekend is not fit and not available for tomorrow. He will rest his toe for two days and then normally, after two days, he can do normal training and [hopefully] he is available for the weekend."

Everton is already sweating the status of two key starters for its season opener against Tottenham this weekend.

Said new manager Ronald Koeman prior to his Everton debut: "Romelu Lukaku is doubtful for the weekend because of the cut he got against Espanyol. We also have Seamus Coleman doubtful with an ankle injury." Lukaku sustained a bad cut to his heel in the club's last friendly, which required stitches last week. Meanwhile, Coleman has been struggling to stay fit this preseason with the ankle problem. If the duo can't go, we could see Bryan Oviedo or Tyias Browning fill in at right-back while Arouna Kone likely to start up top without Lukaku.

Ronald Koeman was quick to allay growing injury fears after Romelu Lukaku was forced off during the 1-0 loss to Espanyol.

The Belgian striker was replaced by Arouna Kone on the hour mark after sustaining a heel injury which required [three] stitches to close an open wound. However, speaking post-match, Koeman provided a positive update revealing Lukaku should be OK to face Tottenham: "There was a lot of blood on his ankle [but] normally he is not a doubt [for next weekend]." Gerard Deulofeu could be deployed in a central role, if Lukaku’s injury turns out to be more serious than first thought. On a brighter note, Phil Jagielka made his first pre-season appearance on Saturday, although game week one could come too soon for the Toffees skipper who lacks match fitness.

Chelsea are reportedly getting ready to bid £68million for Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.

Ex-Chelsea man Lukaku could be headed back to Stamford Bridge. The sums for players are getting ridiculous an d£68million for Lukaku is a crazy amount. Everton have valued him at £75million, and there is a solid chance Chelsea match that. Lukaku has lacked consistency throughout his career, but at just 23-years-old, the upside is huge and Lukaku would be a great fantasy choice if he's playing in London this season.

Romelu Lukaku has left his future in the hands of his agent - Mino Raiola.

There are rumors sending Lukaku to Chelsea or Manchester United, but it is reportedly going to come down to Lukaku's agent as to where he ends up next season. The striker has previously stated he wants to play in the Champions League, and Chelsea wouldn't be able to provide that, but money always speaks louder.

Romelu Lukaku is in no rush to leave Goodison Park according to his agent Mino Raiola.

Lukaku has been linked with a move away from Everton but the Belgium hitman is said to be excited by the prospect of a new challenge under Dutchman Ronald Koeman and could snub interest from former club Chelsea. "Something's changed at Everton: there's a new project," Raiola said before adding that only one of Europe’s elite clubs could afford to buy Lukaku. "The Italian landscape currently looks [like] there's no team that can afford him. He is too expensive for Serie A. If he leaves, it has to be a good deal for all parties involved. Only a global power can pay for him. The top clubs in England, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain." Lukaku netted 18 times last term - his best return in the league since joining in 2014.

Romelu Lukaku awoke from his scoring slumber by bagging a 2nd half brace as Belgium flexed their attacking might in a 3-0 win over Republic of Ireland.

Belgium were the dominant side from start to finish in this one but Republic of Ireland were able to withstand the pressure in the first half to see the game to 0-0 at the break. No such luck in the second frame. A swift counter-attack in the 48th minute found Kevin de Bruyne charging down the right flank and he squared up Lukaku at the top center of the area. Lukaku found the corner of the net with a nice finish. Axel Witsel scored from a header in the 61st minute before Lukaku would score another, which was very similar to his first. This time, it was Eden Hazard who picked him out from the right. On a sour note, Mousa Dembele got the start today but limped off in the second half with an injury.

The speculation is that Romelu Lukaku has unfinished business at Chelsea and will push for a move from Goodison Park to Stamford Bridge this summer.

Mysterious "sources close to the player" have indicated to ESPN FC that Lukaku favors a move to Chelsea despite interest from a number of clubs that will be playing in the Champions League and Europa League next season. Manchester United have been linked in the Premier League as well as other high-profile clubs around Europe. The arrival of Lukaku would present an interesting situation for Antonio Conte as Lukaku's fee would surely mean he'd be hard to keep on the bench in favor of the current number one. Hard to see Costa as a happy camper playing anything other than a full-time starter's role.

Romelu Lukaku's father has taken to the media to indicate that the Belgium international will soon be on the move from Everton.

It is hardly news that Lukaku will leave Everton for a huge pile of cash this summer but the timing indicated by Lukaku's father is a new wrinkle in the budding transfer saga. With clubs all over Europe, including his former club Chelsea and Champions League semi-finalists Bayern Munich, interested, Lukaku's agent, Mino Raiola is apparently set to have a deal done before Belgium begin play in Euro2016 on June 13th.

Everton hardly showed up in a 3-0 loss at the Stadium of Light in a match that meant so much Sunderland's race for survival.

The win ensured Sunderland's survival at the expense of Newcastle and Norwich City, who will be relegated at the end of the season. While the focus was mostly on the Black Cats, Everton has only continued to languish during the stretch run. The Toffees have only won one of their last 10 Premier League matches, being outscored 11-3 in the last four league matches. Romelu Lukaku came closest against Sunderland on Wednesday, hitting the crossbar with a wide open chance in stoppage time to lengthen his scoring drought to eight Premier League matches.

Everton is sweating the fitness of Romelu Lukaku this weekend after picking up a minor groin pull in Wednesday's 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace.

Manager Roberto Martinez said Lukaku still has a chance to be available to face Southampton this weekend despite the quick turnaround: "Romelu has been carrying a bit of a problem and we’ll assess him today to see if he can make the squad. It was against Palace - he stretched for the ball and felt his groin slightly. He didn't train yesterday, but we're hoping he can today." Starting with Wednesday's draw, Everton have to play four games over the course of two weeks, including the FA Cup semifinal next weekend, meaning Lukaku could be given a rest at some point during the double gameweek with Arouna Kone and Oumar Niasse available to fill in.

Everton fans have reason to be worried after Romelu Lukaku said he is ready to make the move to a Champions League-eligible club.

Said Lukaku: "That is the next step for me. I’m 23 next summer and I think it would be nice to play in the Champions League from next season." The 22-year-old has scored 18 Premier League goals this season in his best season to date, starting in all 31 of the club's league matches. However, rumours have been circling for months now that his agent, Mino Raiola, has been lining up teams to make a bid this summer while Lukaku's father recently said he wants the forward to move to Manchester United or Bayern Munich.
