No-one's ever said that Lukaku wasn't an excellent finisher, and now that he's surrounded by better players, he's going to get a lot more chances to prove that point, in all competitions, such as tonight.
But Lukaku's sulking and unwillingness to put in many real back-breaking shifts for Everton was a very real fact in his time at the club (20+ goals a season or not), and let's not get too carried away with one goal at home to FC Basel who don't exactly rank up there with the big boys of European football.
Lukaku's a fine, clinical and accomplished finisher, but he's yet to convince as a genuinely top class, all-round centre forward.
I hope he achieves this, for his own sake.
