The Toffees took a swift lead through Lukaku at Goodison Park, scoring within 31 seconds before the Belgian played it James McCarthy for his first this season.

Lukaku then scored his second before half-time, capitalising on confusion in the Cherries defence before lofting the ball over Artur Boruc.

Everton then took their foot off the pace in the second half, conceding two goals to make it a shaky end to the game.

That was until Lukaku scored his third and fourth goals to put Everton back in the driving seat.

Bournemouth did bring it to 5-3 before Ross Barkley completed the incredible game by rounding the keeper and slotting the ball into an empty net.

After the game, Koeman spoke of the strikers influence.

“Romelu Lukaku proved today that he’s one of the best strikers in the world” he said.

“He’s improving. In the game to be that clinical, his finishing, it’s one of the best.”
