Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Lukaku display for Everton
By Amir Mir
Romelu Lukaku scored for Everton as they were beaten 3-2 at Tottenham – and Spurs fans on Twitter have slated his performance.
Prior to the match, there was a lot of talk about who is the better striker between Harry Kane and Lukaku with the duo on 17 goals a piece in the Premier League.
Well, Kane netted a brace during the game, including a sublime long-range effort to help his side seal all three points.
Belgian forward Lukaku did pull one back for his side after a costly mistake from the home team’s defence late in the second half.
Thereafter, Dele Alli scored in injury time before Enner Valencia scored moments later as the game ended in remarkable fashion.

One fan on Twitter suggested that Lukaku looked static while playing for the Toffees while others felt Kane was just the better player.
Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness stated that he would prefer Lukaku over Kane and the White Hart Lane faithful laughed at him for his comments.
England international Kane is now ahead of his strike counterpart in the goal department, with the Spurs man on 19 goals.
Overall, it is no surprise that fans of the north London club backed their own player and believe he is of better quality than Lukaku.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
