Lukaku can score against anyone - Martinez
Everton manager Roberto Martinez hailed his
sideâ€™s response in their 1-1 draw at West Ham
and reserved particular praise for Toffees
goalscorer Romelu Lukaku.
An excellent goal from Manuel Lanzini handed the
Hammers the lead, but Lukaku â€“ scoring in his
seventh straight game against the Hammers â€“
struck just before the interval to earn the Toffees
a hard-fought point .
Speaking to the BBC after the match, Martinez
said: â€œWe allowed West Ham too much space for
the first goal, but I was delighted with the way we
responded. We kept West Ham very, very quiet in
the second half.
â€œThe performance was terrific in terms of having
a winning mentality. I was just disappointed at the
end that we couldnâ€™t find that bit of magic to get
the three points.â€
â€œLukaku thinks he is going to score against
anyone. Obviously the stat of scoring in so many
games against West Ham is a coincidence, but
what is true is that he is a positive man by nature.
â€œHeâ€™s still a young boy, but the way he is
developing I always think when he is on the pitch
that he is capable of scoring against anyone.â€
