Following a much maligned league goal drought extending as far as March last season, Lukaku helped himself to three goals and Ronald Koeman’s Everton to three points on Monday night against a hapless Sunderland.
The 3-0 victory made it three wins and a draw from the opening four games, meaning that Everton are one of just four unbeaten teams remaining in the Premier League.
With what looks to be a favorable run of fixtures ahead and Lukaku having broken his goal duct, it looks as if Everton are the team to bank on over these coming weeks.
Lukaku is a must pick for fantasy football managers, particularly with the absence of Man City’s Sergio Aguero through suspension. While Everton’s defence is beginning to look settled following some early season injuries – making the ever-roaming Seamus Coleman a excellently priced option for those looking to inject some attacking threat into their back line.
#FantasyGamble – Following a flawless European debut, Leicester City may just return rejuvenated to Premier League action. With Jamie Vardy once again proving the catalyst in their midweek victory, his return to form coincides with an upcoming run of challenging fixtures – the likes of which brought the best out of the 22 goal man last season.
