Lookman Starts As Lukaku Hits Four Goals Past Bournemouth, Hull Shock Liverpool

 

Romelu Lukaku scored a double brace for Everton who held off a late comeback from AFC Bournemouth to win 6-3 at  Goodison Park in a nine-goal Premier League thriller on Saturday.

 

Nigerian winger Ademola Lookman was handed his first English Premier League start since making his debut in their 4-0 defeat of Manchester City.

 

Lookman joined from Charlton Athletic last month and has made two substitute appearances, scoring once.

 

Lukaku scored twice in each half and another goal from James McCarthy secured a comfortable win for the Toffees who moved up to seventh in the EPL table with 40 points from 24 games.

 

Lukaku opened scoring for the hosts after 28 seconds. The Belgian forward curled a wonderful left-footed shot beyond Artur Boruc after a quick exchange with James McCarthy.

 

He turned provider for Everton's second goal, delivering a low cross for McCarthy to tap in from close range.

 

Lukaku made it 3-0 when he capitalised on a wrong back pass from Simon Francis to his goalkeeper and he chipped the goalkeeper for his second of the game and took his tally to 14 goals this season in the EPL.

 

But Bournemouth fought back scoring twice in 11 minutes through Joshua King.

 

 

First he tapped in Jack Wilshere lofty ball past Joel Robles before capping his brace gliding in Ryan Fraser's low cross in the 70th minute.

 

Lukaku restored Everton's three goal advantage when he volleyed in Seamus Coleman cross from the right flank. 

 

Harry Arter has pulled another one back for Bournemouth but Ross Barkley secured a memorable win for Everton.

 

At the KCOM stadium, Liverpool suffered an embarrassing 2-0 loss away to Hull City.

 

A goal in each half from Alfred N'Diaye and Oumar Niasse sealed a fifth win for the Tigers. For Liverpool it was their fifth defeat in eight league games for the Reds in 2017.

 

At Vicarage Road, goals from Troy Deeney and Mbaye Niang secured back to back wins for Watford in their 2-1 win over ten man Burnley.
