Lukaku wants to prove Chelsea wrong

Everton's new on-loan striker Romelu Lukaku is aiming to prove this term to his parent club Chelsea that he is good enough to be their main man.

Lukaku joined the Toffees on a season-long deal on transfer deadline day in what many regarded as a surprise move.

And asked if he felt he had a point to prove, the 20-year-old said:

Yes, because I think after last year, I deserve a chance - like I did the year before, before I went to West Brom.

I thought I deserved that chance, I went to West Brom on loan and did well.

This year, I have a point to prove first to myself, that I can do it again, and then to Chelsea, to show that I can be number one over there as well.
