Everton can do better than seventh place in Prem - Ronald Koeman

21 March, 2017, 11:47 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

Dominic Calvert-Lewin's first goal for the club gave Everton an eighth-minute lead, but it was not until substitute Enner Valencia added the second, after Tom Huddlestone was sent off for a high tackle on Idrissa Gana Gueye, that the result was secured.

British media reports said Lukaku had rejected a new long-term deal from Everton last week that would have made him the best-paid player in the club's history.

The Toffees had been confident the Belgium global would sign a new five-year deal thought to be worth around £140,000 a week.

But I am not so afraid about his situation because the player has two years more on his contract. You need to respect your contract'.

He now has 21 Premier League goals for the season, the first Everton player to break the 20-mark since Gary Lineker in 1986 - who subsequently left for Barcelona - and has equalled the great Bob Latchford's 1977-78 record of scoring in seven successive home matches.

The two 23 year-olds could prove to be the future of Arsenal Football Club should deals be thrashed out, and Koeman himself has already worked wonders with the pair in only a short time together.

"Every player has ambition, likes to play for titles, play in the Champions League".

Meanwhile, Everton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is facing "several weeks" out after suffering a calf injury against Hull.

"I am a little bit anxious he will be out for several weeks but we need to wait for the scan to know what happened", Koeman said.

If they needed any added incentive the first two matches back after the worldwide break are the Merseyside derby at Anfield and a trip to Old Trafford.
