Lukaku had his best game in weeks, getting off nine shots (0 on goal) and contributing an assist in the 2.2 draw to Leicester Sunday.

While the nine shots are encouraging, the zero on goal just emphasizes how much Lukaku has been struggling as of late. Hopefully the assist will get things going for Lukaku and he'll look to get out of his scoring slump next Sunday against Arsenal.

Romelu Lukaku: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

February 13, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku said he hopes to leave Everton to play for a top club, reports Sky Sports.

The Belgian striker only joined Everton full time last summer, and hasn't matched his prior season's performance yet this year. Lukaku joined Everton from Chelsea.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku got off four shots with three on goal, but was unable to score in the 1-0 loss to Chelsea Wednesday.

Lukaku is just off his game right now as he blew a point blank range shot that would have given Everton the lead late in the match. He only has one goal in his last 11 matches and he desperately needs to get back into form to move Everton up the table. The shot production and activity is a good sign, so look for him to possibly bounce back next weekend when Everton host Leicester on the 22nd.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku failed to record a shot in the 0-0 draw to Liverpool Saturday and was caught offsides four times.

Lukaku has had a disappointing season and his ability to stay onsides has been a big reason why. He now leads the Premier League with 28 offsides penalties and the player in second (Diego Costa) only has 20. Clearly the lack of goals is getting to Lukaku's head and he is pressing by being offsides so often. He'll look to perform well this upcoming Wednesday when Everton take on Lukaku's former squad in Chelsea.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku scored the only goal in the second minute of Everton's 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

It's about time for Lukaku as this was his first goal in over two months. He also got off three shots in the match and the team looked good for the first time in quite awhile. Everton have their big rivalry match next weekend when they host Liverpool on Feb. 7th.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku led Everton with three shots (two on goal) in the 1-1 draw to Manchester City Saturday.

Lukaku hasn't scored in over a month now and it's becoming a bit of a concern. Someone as talented as Lukaku should be able to get out of the slump, but if it continues the manager may have to look towards veteran Samuel Eto'o for some goals. Hopefully Lukaku can get off the schnide next Monday when Everton take on one of his former clubs in West Brom.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku was subbed on at half for Kevin Mirallas and got off three shots in the 2-0 loss to Hull City Thursday.

Lukaku has been playing a ton lately with the condensed schedule and the substitute appearances appear to be just a bit of rest for the Belgian. It's been a month since Lukakau last scored, so he'll be glad to see the calendar turn to a new year. Lukaku will likely start when Everton face Man City next Saturday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku led Everton with four shots (two on goal) in the 1-0 loss to Stoke on Boxing Day.

Lukaku looked strong in this match and he was unfortunate not to find the back of the net in a match Everton controlled, but still lost. Lukaku is in a bit of a slump as of late, not scoring since the 3rd of December. He'll look to get back on form when Everton travel to Newcastle this Sunday.
