31-Year-Old Forward Everton Premier
Kone got a rare start and was able to score in the 3-2 loss to Newcastle Sunday.
Lukaku had started the past four matches in a two week span, so the start for Kone was no surprise. Kone was subbed off in the 72nd minute for Lukaku, so he clearly made the best use of his limited time. The blonde Nigerian had a fine game, getting off three shots and completing nearly 96% of his passes along with snatching the opening goal. Everton may look to start the striker again come next Thursday as Lukaku has been in a but of a slump as of late.
