Lukaku strikes in Ever­ton win

Fiji Sun - - Sport - Romelu Lukaku

Lon­don: Ever­ton ended a se­quence of five matches with­out a win with a scrappy 2-0 vic­tory against a West Ham side who re­main close to the rel­e­ga­tion zone. Romelu Lukaku put Ever­ton ahead, head­ing home from close range for his sev­enth Pre­mier League goal against the Ham­mers. Ever­ton im­proved as the match pro­gressed and Ross Barkley, un­der scru­tiny this sea­son for some in­con­sis­tent per­for­mances, capped a fine dis­play with a half-vol­ley that se­cured the points for the hosts. West Ham, who had been un­beaten in Oc­to­ber, had chances and were the bet­ter side in the first half but were left to rue An­gelo Og­bonna’s miss, which could have given the vis­i­tors the lead.
