Everton boss Martinez has no doubts over Lukaku commitment

Everton boss Roberto Martinez has no doubts over the commitment of Romelu Lukaku.

The Belgium striker has managed just two goals so far this season for Everton since his £28m summer move.

Martinez said: "Looking at his motivation last season it could be a concern but looking at Rom, I can guarantee you that is no concern because his mind set has changed.

"He was trying to impress and find a permanent move, now his focus is winning games and winning trophies.

"He has become the most important player for Belgium. He has different goals.

"He's not in a position where he has got no challenge left, it is not that.

"Rom is very much focused and is ready to have a very strong season."
