Striker Romelu Lukaku opted against picking a single Everton player whilst naming his best Premier League five-a-side team.
The 23-year-old, who previously played for Chelsea, decided to name four players from the Stamford Bridge club in his side.
They included the likes of Thibaut Courtois, John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba – the latter two have since left the club.
Manchester City centre-back and Lukaku’s Belgian captain, Vincent Kompany was the other player named in the team.
Former England international Lampard, who lifted the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup as a player, recently retired and this is what Lukaku had to say about him.
“Unbelievable finisher,” Lukaku told the official Premier League website. “I see him do stuff and I’m thinking ‘my god, how do you do that’. For me in the Prem, I’ve never seen better than him.”
It is perhaps no surprise that Lukaku didn’t name any Everton players as a number of them are still young talents who are looking to prove themselves.
Aside from his Belgian teammate and goalkeeper Courtois, the other players named by Lukaku are in their 30’s having achieved a considerable amount during their careers.
Lukaku will be hoping to follow in their footsteps and lift the Premier League and Champions League during his career.
At this moment in time, he is producing the goods for Ronald Koeman’s side as he has scored 17 goals in all competitions this season.
This includes finding the back of the net on four occasions against Bournemouth last Saturday as his team went on to win the encounter 6-3.
