Everton captain Phil Jagielka believes Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho pulled off a masterstroke loaning them Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgian has been a revelation for Everton this season.

"It's not a bad idea and a way at looking at things from Chelsea's perspective," Jagielka told the Daily Mirror.

"Unfortunately for Rom, with Chelsea mainly playing one up front, he had a big decision to make whether to stay there and play five or 10 games a season or do what he did when he went to West Brom last season.

"I think he made the right decision. That's already been proven and we're only a third the way through the season.

"Potentially it can work for Chelsea. He can't play against Chelsea, but can against everyone else."
