Hull boss has theory why Chelsea let Lukaku leave on-loan

Hull boss Steve Bruce believes Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho allowed Romelu Lukaku to join Everton on loan in a bid to hurt the Blues title rivals. "He's a hell of a loan signing on deadline day, someone like Lukaku," said Bruce. "I saw him playing for Belgium in midweek and he's going to be one hell of a player.

"Maybe the reason why he's gone there is Jose has thought 'maybe Everton can go and get a few points off the big boys with him in their team'.

That would be pretty shrewd really and I think they can."
