Everton star could brighten up an ailing season for Toffees fans

Everton are in the bottom half of the Premier League table. Everton have conceded the same number of goals as Crystal Palace – who haven’t won a league game in 2016. Everton were genuine top four challengers this time two years ago.

It’s fair to say that this season has been one to forget for Toffees fans. Okay, an FA Cup semi-final is still fluttering its eyelashes on the horizon, but the league campaign has fizzled out, with Roberto Martinez somewhat battling for his job. About the only positive is that Tim Howard won’t be dropping the ball into his own net at Goodison Park next term!

Or is it? Hold on Everton fans, Romelu Lukaku could just save the day for you and win you two half-price pizzas in the space of a week! That’s right, Papa John’s are giving away 50% off orders if you back the Merseysiders and they score two or more goals in any Premier League match – they have TWO over the coming week against Watford and Palace.

And Lukaku may just be the man to get you a slice of the action, with the burly Belgian, despite Everton’s struggles, behind only Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane in the division’s scoring charts with 18 goals. The omens get even better when you look deeper into the numbers, with the 22-year-old having scored five in his last six games, including that solo goal against Chelsea in the cup (above).
