Lukaku: I Must Be A Killer In Attack

share on:

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku believes he must have the instinct of a serial killer to score more goals after his hattrick.

The Belgium international ended his goal drought for the club by heading in the opening goal in the second half.

Lukaku completed his hattrick of goals in 11 minutes, as Everton move third on the table.

“I think we could have done better, especially in the first half. It wasn’t as good as we wanted,” he told Sky Sports.

“They defended well but we didn’t get the ball up front or create chances, aside from one or two that I missed. It wasn’t good enough.

“The second half was much better and it was a well deserved win.

“I think I could have had five at the end, maybe, so I have to be more of a serial killer. But we won today and the defence did a brilliant job. We have to keep going as a team.”

Lukaku, who scored twice in Belgium’s World Cup qualifying win over Cyprus last week, insists he was always confident he would recapture his scoring touch once his fitness levels improved following a post-Euro 2016 break.

“It was coming. When I went to Belgium, I said it was about my fitness levels, which weren’t as good as I wanted them to be. You have to be patient in the Premier League,” he said.

“I’m happy for the team. We’re in a good position in the league and we have to keep going.”
