Lukaku picked up a knock against Burnley and will now have a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Swansea City, FOX Sports reports.

Lukaku has scored four goals in Premier League play this season and will be sorely missed by Everton if he's deemed unfit for Saturday's match with Swansea. If he's ultimately unable to play, the 21-year-old's next opportunity to get on the pitch will be Nov. 9 against Sunderland.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku found the back of the net Sunday in the 3-1 win over Burnley.

It was a typical strikers goal with a clean slotted finish and it looks as though Lukaku is back in form getting off three shots in the match. Lukaku has a nice schedule coming up facing Swansea, West Ham, and Sunderland in his next three matches.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lukaku looked good Saturday getting off all three of his shots on goal and drawing four fouls in the 1-1 draw to Liverpool.

Lukaku was unlucky to score in this one but his productivity and activeness are a good sign going forward. Everton travel to Manchester next weekend and with how poor their defense looks, Lukaku looks a fine bet to score next weekend.

Lukaku scored again Sunday in the 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace Sunday.

Lukaku is starting to get hot netting in back to back games now. When Lukaku gets going there aren't many better strikers around, so now is the time to get him into your lineups before his value skyrockets. He'll look to net again against rivals Liverpool next weekend.

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.

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.
