Koeman ready to sign Lukaku's contract for him!

Koeman ready to sign Lukaku's contract for him!

Saturday's comprehensive win over West Brom has afforded Everton a seven-point gap over their closest competitors in the battle for a continental spot.

Koeman was delighted with his team's "professional" performance and was particularly pleased with the way they dealt with West Brom's aerial threat.

Barkley has five assists in his last eight games - only Swansea's Gylfi Sigurdsson has more in 2017 - and beginning to impose himself on matches more regularly.

Ronald Koeman's self-confidence must have been through the roof - praising the Blues' strike force as a collective who will "always score goals", explaining that his side "have those sorts of players".

"What we like is that strikers find the best position in that moment and that's what happened with this game".

I am really pleased because it's hard against West Brom.

Rangers striker Martyn Waghorn squandered a brilliant chance to open the scoring but was denied by a fine save from Hoops goalkeeper Craig Gordon before Stuart Armstrong put the league leaders in front after 35 minutes with a fine left-footed strike.

West Ham vs. Chelsea
Hazard, who has dramatically improved this season under Conte, spoke about the influence of the animated Italian on the touchline. He was acquired by Monaco last summer from fellow Ligue 1 side Lille and has scored three goals in 34 games so far this season.

'The boy is so strong, so good on the ball. But maybe after six points then we come closer and then maybe something is possible.

That was quickly added to by a second before the break as Koeman's side entered the interval in charge.

"Sixth would be unbelievable", said their manager, Ronald Koeman.

The playmaker has been accused of inconsistency in recent years, and he was briefly left out of the Everton side by Ronald Koeman earlier this term, but it only seems to have brought the best out of him. "I think of course he will be in the squad".

Everton won the reverse fixture 2-1 back in August, with goals from Kevin Mirallas and Gareth Barry cancelling out Gareth McAuley's opener for West Brom, and it's likely to be another game of fine margins between two good teams on Saturday. "He has a lot more freedom now in the team".
