Former Liverpool striker Christian Benteke equalised for Crystal Palace in the second half.

Lukaku has now scored five goals in his last four games for the club and looks to have begun a scoring run after a slow start.

Fans of the Toffees were pleased with what they saw from the Belgium international and they went onto social media to hail their young striker.
