Lukaku scored in the 2nd minute and was later subbed off in the 68th minute of the 2-0 win over West Brom Saturday.

It's good to see Lukaku get his name on the scoresheet for the first time this year just a week after dealing with some minor toe problems. Lukaku is just getting started and don't be surprised to see him grab another goal in a very favorable match-up next weekend hosting a poor Crystal Palace side.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku has been dealing with a toe ailment recently and he was unable to play for Belgium over the international break, but he is expected to face West Brom on Saturday.

Lukaku will lead the line for Everton as they look for their first win of the season. While Steven Naismith has scored three goals in three games, Lukaku is still the upside play out of Goodison Park.

Lukaku returned from his minor toe injury to start and play 89 minutes against Chelsea in the 6-3 loss Saturday.

It was disappointing not to see Lukaku score in a 9 goal match against his former club, but he may be just easing back into fitness with the nicks he has picked up. Lukaku plays another former club in West Brom in two weeks and will look to get his name on the score sheet in a good matchup.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez confirmed that Lukaku was removed from Saturday's match against Arsenal in the 77th minute due to a toe injury. "Romelu has been struggling with a knock on his toe and he did incredibly well to be available today," Martinez said in his post-match press conference.

Despite the toe injury, Lukaku is expected to play next weekend against Chelsea, who sold Lukaku to Everton this summer after sending him on loan there last season.

Lukaku assisted on Steven Naismith's goal in a 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Saturday

Lukaku made a typical beast run to get open and eventually slotted a pass that Naismith finished off nicely. Lukaku took two shots and came off with what looked to be a commanding 2-0 lead in the 76th minute, which Everton eventually blew. He will look to make his former club pay next weekend when Everton host Chelsea.

Lukaku is in the starting XI for Everton's Premier League opener against Leicester City.

There was speculation that Lukaku may sit after beginning his preseason training late due to the World Cup, but the Belgian striker returns and starts his first competitive match since transferring from Chelsea.

Lukaku officially transferred from Chelsea to Everton for a fee of 28 million on Wednesday, ESPN FC reports.

Everton have made the Belgian their largest signing of all time and it looks as though he'll be at Goodison Park for the foreseeable future with his five-year deal. Lukaku has a chance to be the top goal-scorer in the EPL, as he'll be the primary striking option for Everton once again.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku is reportedly on the verge of a 25 million move from Chelsea to Everton, the Daily Mail reports.

Lukaku is believed to be ready to sign a five-year deal with the Toffees, who he spent last season playing with while on loan. Lukaku had 15 league goals in 31 appearances last season and could be one of the best strikers in fantasy with the move. With Diego Costa firmly entrenched as the starting striker at Stamford Bridge, Lukaku became expendable, with the transfer fee a hefty sum that will help with FFP regulations following a summer of high-profile signings by Chelsea.
