Everton hero Romelu Lukaku has delivered a three-word rallying call after the Toffees were held at home by Crystal Palace.
The 1-1 draw played on Friday night continues their run of good form that sees Ronald Koeman’s men currently sit in third with 14 points from seven games.
Speaking on his personal Twitter account, the former Anderlecht striker called for the Toffees squad to focus on the next game and “let’s keep working.”
Everton’s number 10 gave his side the lead in the 35th minute with a sweet free kick from 25 yards out that left former Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda helpless. Fellow Belgian star Christian Benteke equalised in the second half for the Eagles.
The act of passion from the Belgium international is surprising following a summer-long transfer saga that had Lukaku rumoured to be leaving Goodison Park, with the likes of Italian Champions Juventus and former side Chelsea interested.
However, the 23-year-old has stayed in Merseyside and in recent games has hit the ground running despite a sticky start.
Despite not scoring in his first three appearances of the season, Lukaku struck a hat-trick against Sunderland before finding the net against Middlesbrough and now Alan Pardew’s Palace.
The draw for Everton gives the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United a chance to catch up, while Manchester City and Tottenham can extend their lead as the Premier League’s top two.
