Everton will have to wait another year to end its trophy drought after blowing a home lead to Leicester City in the FA Cup third round.

It looked as though Everton had turned a corner in the match with a 63rd-minute goal from star forward Romelu Lukaku, connecting on a cross from Gerard Deulofeu to take a 1-0 lead. It was Lukaku's seventh goal in his last seven FA Cup appearances. But within eight minutes, the lead wasn't just gone—it had turned into a deficit thanks to the magic of Leicester City substitute Ahmed Musa, who scored two goals within five minutes of each other to take the lead. Without anything but a top-seven finish to play for, the Toffees will have to reevaluate ahead of their showdown with Manchester City next weekend.

Everton is reportedly close to locking down star forward Romelu Lukaku to a new contract in the coming weeks.

The Belgian international has scored 10 goals this season amid speculation over a big-money move. But even though he is set for bigger wages and a long-term contract, Lukaku is not expected to stay at Everton for much longer. However, manager Ronald Koeman seems confident in keeping Lukaku on Merseyside: "I know they are in talks together about a new contract but, if it is 99 per cent, I need to believe his agent. It's a big deal and that is what the club is showing to keep the best players and do everything to keep them in the club because that is the future."

Romelu Lukaku got back on the score sheet with a pair of goals, but Watford would score three times between the Belgian's strikes and down Everton, 3-2.

It was end to end action in this one from the jump but it was Everton who grabbed the opening goal on 17 minutes. Gareth Barry sent a ball over the top to find Lukaku in the box and the Belgian slotted home, ending his four game goalless drought. The Toffees did not do well to protect their lead however, as they conceded three goals unanswered, two of which came from set pieces where Everton displayed some shocking defending. They made a game of it late though, as Lukaku's second goal in the 86th minute brought them back to within a goal. This time, he scored a powerful header from an Aaron Lennon cross. It was too little, too late though as Everton have gone winless in the league since Week 10.

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.

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.
