Lukaku: Everton can win Europa League

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku believes that the club has what it takes to win the Europa League and that the intensity they are used to in the Premier League will serve them well during the competition, reports

Despite inconsistent domestic form, the Toffees sailed through Group H of the Europa League, finishing top with 11 points out of a possible 18. Their only defeat came when a much-changed line-up was narrowly beaten at home by FK Krasnodar on match day six.

They now go on to face Swiss club Young Boys in the last 32, with manager Roberto Martinez taking the tournament particularly seriously, as the prize for the winners is a place in the Champions League for next season.

And Lukaku, the club’s record signing, thinks that Everton have the quality to make it all the way to the final in Warsaw. “We want to win the competition and if we want to do that then we need to deliver a good performance over there,” he said.

“Even though we know it is not going to be easy we are professionals and we have to do the job. It all depends on the day. If we play with the intensity that we play with in the Premier League then not many teams can cope with us. A lot of teams in the European competitions have difficulties when playing against a Premier League side that plays at the tempo of the Premier League.’
