Romelu Lukaku believes that Everton will make the top four this season, and that the Toffees can even challenge for the Premier League title, writes Sky
Everton are currently lying in fourth place, five points behind leaders Arsenal, after a fine season so far under new manager Roberto Martinez, who has seen his side lose just twice in the Premier League all season, against Manchester City and Sunderland.
And Chelsea loanee Lukaku, who is Everton’s top scorer this season, believes that anything is possible. He said: “I don’t think we are surprised by the way this season has gone, because we know we have quality. When we are on the pitch, we work hard and run for each other and try to be ruthless. That last part, becoming more ruthless, is what we have to work on in the second half of the season.
“If we are more ruthless we will end definitely in the top four. Definitely. We have two losses and a lot of wins. In the games we drew we weren’t ruthless enough, so if you change that and become more ruthless it becomes more wins, and then we are up there. I am not surprised we are top four contenders.
“In fact, you can say we are outsiders for the title now. You don’t need to be shy about that. You have got to when you look at our points.’
