Everton striker Lukaku: I stay in touch with Drogba, Anelka

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku admits he's still in touch with former teammates Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka.

Lukaku is preparing to make his debut for loan club Everton this weekend.

"Drogba was my mentor and still is to this day. From day one at Chelsea I looked up to him and Anelka.

"Didi was always moving and Nicolas as well. That's what I learned from them - to always be moving, always alert. They told me you have to be mentally strong. When you come inside of the box you have to kill."
