Everton fans react on Twitter to Lukaku display v Swansea
By Dominic Toner
Romelu Lukaku failed to make an impact for Everton on Saturday – and the club’s supporters were disappointed with his performance on Twitter.
The Toffees slipped to a 1-1 draw against Swansea in the Premier League and Lukaku offered very little in front of goal.
The Premier League’s bottom club Swansea took the lead in the first-half with a Gylfi Sigurdsson penalty, with Phil Jagielka committing a clumsy foul from behind on the Iceland international.
Defender Seamus Coleman rescued a point with an 89th minute header and Everton remained seventh-placed in the league table.
Lukaku, 23, was guilty of missing a good opportunity from close-range in the first-half for the Merseyside club.

The striker failed to get into the game after that and the Everton fans were highly critical of his performance.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Glad to see lukaku is doing everything he can to prove koeman wrong. It turns out he can't do better than Everton, he is actually worse.

Lukaku's first touch ????????????????????????

The reason we scored is cz Valencia actually pressured a centre back into a poor header, and Coleman jumped over a stationary Lukaku

So much wrong with that. Jagielka and Williams' passing is just horrible, Lennon/ Deulofeu/ Bolasie did almost nothing, Lukaku peripheral.

Lukaku was unable to help Everton bounce back from a crushing 5-0 defeat against Chelsea in their last game.
The striker has been an important member of the club’s success this season and has scored seven goals in 12 appearances across all competitions.
He has been criticised by fans for not offering enough when Everton are not in possession, however, and will need to improve that part of his game.
Lukaku has been a prolific goal scorer during his time at Goodison Park with 68 goals from 138 club appearances.
In other Everton news, this 20-year-old must consider a permanent move away from the club.
