LOAN WATCH: Chelsea's Lukaku desperate for Everton action

Romelu Lukaku is determined to force his way into Everton's first team as soon as possible.

The 20-year old Belgian striker is on a season-long loan at Goodison Park from Chelsea but is yet to taste action for the Toffees.

Lukaku was not in Roberto Martinez's matchday squad for Saturday's 1-0 victory over the southwest Londoners and it pained him to sit and watch from the stands.

"I was like, 'why am I not on the pitch at this moment?'. It was difficult watching, because every time someone had the ball I was like, 'I'd do this in that position' or, 'I'd do it that way'," Lukaku told the club's official website.

"It was 90 minutes of happiness to see the team play well and win, but also 90 minutes of pain because I wasn't on the pitch.

"Personally, I just want to help the team finish as high as possible in the league and hopefully arrive in a cup final if possible.

"I'm a striker, so if I keep it simple and score goals, that will be important. I'll work hard and if I do my best in training everyday then goals will come."
