He may not have known a lot about it but Romelu Lukaku was once again a match-winner on Saturday as Everton came from behind at West Ham. The Belgian was knocked out cold by Joey O'Brien in the act of scoring the decisive 85th-minute goal at Upton Park his first for the club since moving on loan from Chelsea on deadline day. And after scoring 17 goals while at West Brom last season the 20-year-old must be wondering what more he has to do to convince Jose Mourinho of his worth. As Chelsea again relied on goals from midfield - including a very rare strike from John Obi Mikel - to beat Fulham a dangerous player like Lukaku would surely come in handy. But Mourinho confirmed that there was no way Lukaku could return to Stamford Bridge this season meaning the forward must continue to impress away from his proper club. He said that there was no recall clause in Lukaku's contract meaning he is definitely at Goodison Park until May.
Lukaku delivers blow but lack of recall clause in loan deal means Mourinho won't see the benefits until next season
