Romelu Lukaku takes Everton to #3 spot after hattrick against Sunderland

News Agencies | Updated on: 13 September 2016, 11:49 IST

Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku netted a scintillating hat-trick as he propelled Everton to a 3-0 win over a hapless Sunderland side at the Stadium of Light on 13 September.

The 23-year-old ended an 13-game goal drought by clinically dispatching two headers from well-worked Idrissa Gueye and Yannick Bolasie crosses in the second half, the Mirror reported.

Lukaku then completed his hat-trick in 11 minutes when he calmly side-footed the ball past Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Sky Sports quoted Lukaku as saying, "I think it was all about fitness levels. I'm happy for the team. I think I could have had five in the end. I have to be more of a serial killer for the team to achieve their objective."

With the win, Everton climbed up to third in the points table while Sunderland are languishing down at the bottom.
