Everton hero Tony Cottee says they need a fully fit Romelu Lukaku back.

Cottee, a former striker of distinction with both Everton and West Ham, his return cannot come soon enough.

"Lukaku started well when he first came to Everton, but he's had a run where, when he was fit, he wasn't scoring many goals," Cottee told the Liverpool Echo.

"He did well at West Brom last season and has done well again at Everton, up to a point.

"But Everton now need him back in the team and back firing in the goals."
