It's hard to replace Lukaku, Everton Boss Koeman says

It's hard to replace Lukaku, Everton Boss Koeman says

Bet 365 are giving odds of 7/10 for Everton to win against Stoke City in Saturday's clash at Goodison Park.

Everton's position has been weakened by long-term injuries to key players in defenders Seamus Coleman and Ramiro Funes Mori, plus midfielder Yannick Bolasie although Koeman is more concerned about adding to a list of specialist forwards which only consists of 22-year-old Spanish signing Sandro.

As it was, referee Craig Pawson allowed the controversial strike to stand after former striker Romelu Lukaku was deemed not to have been interfering with play, and the two sides held out for a point apiece after a tetchy second 45 minutes.

Wayne Rooney returning to Everton is massive news for the club and the reception he'll receive should have Goodison shaking.

It's been a busy summer at Everton so far with business including bringing back Rooney from Manchester United and landing Michael Keane, Jordan Pickford and Davy Klaassen.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: Signing Lionel Messi "suddenly sounds possible"
A player previously thought of as untouchable. "I love football, because you make each other stronger", the German added. At Real, United and now seemingly PSG, he has found it increasingly hard to force his way into the starting XI.


Everton's two qualifiers were sandwiched in between four other pre-season friendlies, which concluded with a 2-2 home draw against Sevilla last weekend. We must all concentrate on getting a good league run going and achieving some consistency in the Premier League. "Playing Stoke City is always a battle, home or away".

Eighty-three days after Stoke City ended 13 in the Premier League we are back to start again.

It was October 15 before Stoke collected their first league win last season, September 26 the season before that and September 29 the campaign before that.

Only Frank Lampard and Alan Shearer (8) have scored more goals on Premier League opening day than Rooney (7).

With the benefit of Europa League football in their legs already, expect them to be flying today. They've bought in players, spent money and they are having a go though, so fair play to them. Though he also serves fair warning that they will not drag this out until the final day, so if either Spurs or Chelsea truly want Barkley, we better get a move on.
