Ronald Koeman praises professional Romelu Lukaku after Everton rout Hull

Ronald Koeman

Pundit Trevor Sinclair has taken to Twitter to suggest that Everton need to give manager Ronald Koeman a new contract in order to keep players like Romelu Lukaku at the club.

Having rejected the most lucrative contract offer in Everton's history, worth a reported £140,000-per-week, Lukaku this week admitted the club's failure to compete for major trophies and attract top players was likely to convince him to leave.

The Toffees had been confident the Belgium global would sign a new five-year deal thought to be worth around £140,000 a week.

Everton fans refused to turn on the 23-year-old and instead roared when his name was announced over the speakers before the game.

Futures indicate that Japanese stocks are set to weaken as the yen strengthens ahead of a Bank of Japan policy decision Thursday. Aided by stronger oil, Wall Street was cautiously firmer around mid-session in NY , with the Dow edging up around 0.3 per cent.

The hosts were leading 2-0 when Lukaku struck twice in added time to seal his side's sixth successive home league win.

"He's a professional player and his commitment maybe looks different because of two or three quotes".

"You are surprised about this?" said Koeman when asked about Lukaku's performance. "We're in a good position in this project and you don't sell your best players".

"We try to get the best players, but a lot of them want to play Champions League and we are not playing Champions League at the moment". However, it looked to be a harsh decision from the replay.

Wenger admits that Arsenal 'cannot waste points'
You try to do as well as you can. " I have nothing to say about that anymore ". "I have talked enough about that". To win the FA Cup, though, Arsenal have to get past Manchester City in a tough semifinal at Wembley next month.

A calf injury to Morgan Schneiderlin was the one downside of the day and the influential midfielder is likely to miss the Merseyside derby at Anfield immediately after the worldwide break.

The French midfielder, 27, had to be replaced after half an hour. "But the final result didn't reflect what happened on the pitch", Koeman added.

However Koeman still believes that catching Jose Mourinho's Manchester United, who are in sixth and seven points ahead of Koeman's men, will prove Everton's ambition to join the Premier League's elite.
