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

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

Having enjoyed a record-breaking, medal-laden stint at Old Trafford, the 31-year-old this summer returned to Goodison Park in search of regular first-team football. "We can improve and spend money but everyone can improve is spending money".

Everton face a hard start to the season, with the visit of Stoke followed by games against Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham and United. "That is why we signed Wayne - expecting to show his team-mates all that experience, and it was really important", he said. I don't say impossible but 25 goals is a lot and we need to find other ways.

The Dutchman is also unable to call upon long-term injured trio Seamus Coleman (broken leg), Yannick Bolasie (knee) and Ramiro Funes Mori (knee), but will look to give six new squad members their Premier League bows. "And if you think it's a really tough start maybe it is different because everybody is not on his best at this stage of the season, the end of the pre-season".

The 24-year-old was in the wars during the game after receiving a head blow, but looked like a real leader for the hosts as they hung on at the end to secure victory. "That's encouraging for us, we know we're a good side with good players, we just need a little bit more of a cutting edge and that ability to take chances if they are few and far between in games which it was today". They lost Marko Arnautovic, however, so they might miss the Austrian playmaker.




"On a personal level scoring the winning goal at Goodison Park is a special moment", Rooney said.

"It's always a close game when we play Everton - a draw and they won by a single goal last season".

"If there is a club thinking we can wait until the last day and we put some money on the table and we get Ross Barkley, sorry, you do not get Ross Barkley".

However, the efforts of Ronald Koeman and his team should also be applauded for not only have they brought one of the brightest Spanish talents to the English shores, they have done it quickly and at a price which could prove him to be steal of the transfer market one year from now.
