Everton boss Koeman upbeat over Lukaku injury recovery

Everton boss Ronald Koeman expects Romelu Lukaku to be fit for the trip to Bournemouth.

The Belgium international, who has bagged four Premier League goals this season, missed Everton's 2-0 EFL CUP defeat to Norwich on Tuesday with a toe injury.

But Koeman, whose side sit second in the table, has put to rest fears that Everton's top goalscorer this season would face an extended layoff.

"He did training separate to the group today and we expect him to train normally in the morning," the Dutchman said. "If that happens, he will be fit for the weekend."
