Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirmed a trio of key players have returned to training after dealing with a series of minor injuries.

Midfielders James McCarthy and Kevin Mirallas missed the club's scoreless draw with Middlesbrough in Week 25 while star forward Romelu Lukaku was left out of the club's warm-weather trip to Dubai in order to recover from a calf injury. But the trio has returned to full training and look set to take part in the weekend match with Sunderland: "Romelu had a little calf problem but has been back in training for the last three days. James McCarthy and Kevin Mirallas have also trained with the group this week."

Everton manager Ronald Koeman is confident Romelu Lukaku will be fully fit for the upcoming weekend.

The star forward has spent the last week in Belgium, rather than with the club on a warm-weather training trip to Dubai, receiving treatment on a calf injury. But Koeman confirmed this is all according to plan with the star forward set to return for the club's Week 26 match against Sunderland. "We know that for 10 days Rom has had some problems with his calf. He has a lot of confidence in the Belgian doctor and I gave him permission to go to Belgium and recover. We expect him, normally, next Tuesday to be joining in the training session. He will be fit and available for the weekend."

Everton will take advantage of their free weekend by travelling to Dubai for a warm weather training camp, but the Toffees will be without top scorer Romelu Lukaku.

The 23-year-old, who is a rich vein of form, will instead, head to Belgium for treatment on a calf issue which has been bothering him in recent weeks. The precise nature of the issue isn’t known at this point but the club say his injury is "not serious" and Lukaku should line up at the Stadium of Light when the Premier League fixtures resume on February 25. Dominic Calvert-Lewin, currently out after damaging ankle ligaments, and Mo Besic who is recovering from a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament were named as part of the group but Yannick Bolasie did not make the trip. Everton have climbed to seventh in the table and remain unbeaten since the derby loss to Liverpool back in December, a run of eight games which includes a 4-0 win over Man City.

Romelu Lukaku couldn't figure out a sturdy Middlesbrough defense in a disappointing 0-0 away draw for Everton.

Lukaku couldn't replicate any of the magic that saw him score four goals in 6-3 massacre of Bournemouth last weekend, managing only one shot on target in the entire match that required a remarkable save from Victor Valdes. Joel Robles had a couple highlight saves of his own while Leighton Baines came to the rescue in the second half when he cleared a goal-bound header off the line. Everton has now gone its last eight Premier League matches without a loss, although Everton lost ground on sixth-place Manchester United.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku put together one of the most prolific performances of the season in a 6-3 win against Bournemouth.

In what was a barn-burning, high-octane shootout that featured nine goals between the two sides, it was Lukaku who managed four of those goals to become the Premier League's top scorer on 16 goals. The former Chelsea phenom started right away with a goal in the first 30 seconds, a beautiful curling effort from the edge of the area to tie the fastest goal of the season. He then set up James McCarthy's goal in the 23rd minute, then adding a second goal just six minutes later for a 3-0 half-time lead. Lukaku waited until the 83rd to secure a hat-trick, then adding a fourth just a minute after.

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."

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."
