Everton expect Lukaku to feature at Bournemouth

Everton manager Ronald Koeman believes Romelu Lukaku will be fit to play against AFC Bournemouth this weekend.

The Belgian striker missed the midweek EFL Cup clash with Norwich City because of a toe injury but is expected to be available when the Toffees take on the Cherries at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

"He did training, separate to the group, today and we expect him to train normally tomorrow [Friday] morning," said Koeman of Lukaku.

"If that happens then he is fit for the weekend."

Lukaku has scored four goals in his past two Premier League outings for Everton who sit second on the table with four wins and a draw from their five matches.
