Everton midfielder Gareth Barry says Romelu Lukaku won't be knocked off his game by a row with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho has challenged Lukaku to explain to the world why he is playing on-loan at Everton this season.

For the moment, Lukaku hasn't responded and Barry said: “He didn’t let it distract him. The lads spoke to him about the headlines and gave him a bit of stick about it.

"Rom is very strong-minded and confident in his own ability.

“He showed in his performance it hasn’t affected him and that’s all forgotten now.

“He can keep concentrating and hopefully keep scoring goals.”
