The directors and financiers at Everton must feel fairly pleased at this moment. They received a record £75m ($100m) for Romelu Lukaku over the summer, and brought back club hero Wayne Rooney for free.

At this point, Lukaku and Rooney have the same amount of Premier League goals.

After starting the campaign brightly, the Manchester United striker’s form has dipped dramatically.
