Twitter reacts to huge blow for Everton

Everton’s European campaign continues as they visit the Liberty Stadium for their Premier League clash with Swansea City. However, Roberto Martinez’s side will have to do it without their powerful talisman Romelu Lukaku leading the line.

The Belgium international hasn’t made the matchday 18, and, although the official line is an injury, the cynical ones out there will be suggesting it has to Lukaku’s new agent recently saying that if he had met the striker sooner, he wouldn’t have moved to Everton from Chelsea.

Whatever the narrative is behind the former Anderlecht powerhouse’s absence is, there’s no denying that the Toffees will miss the big man up top; he has eighteen goals and six assists from 39 appearances across all competitions this season.

Arouna Kone has been tasked with filling his team-mates boots – David James suggest during the pre-match chat that the former Wigan Athletic man was a better option than Romelu(!) – but what do the Everton fans make of Lukaku’s absence and Kone’s starting spot?
