'Lukaku will give us another headache'

 By Lloyd Webb

Arsene Wenger says Romelu Lukaku will provide Arsenal with “another headache” on Saturday.

The Gunners defence faced Barcelona’s feared front three of Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar on Wednesday, and will now have to deal with the Belgian international at Goodison Park.

"Our defenders should take encouragement from the performance they put in against Barcelona"

Lukaku has scored five times in his last four appearances and Wenger has been impressed with how the striker has developed since arriving in England as a 18-year-old.

“We knew him from Belgium, but he went to Chelsea,” he said. "He then went out on loan to Everton and I expected him to go back to Chelsea. After that, we were never on the case [to sign him].

“He's developing well - year after year he's better. His finishing his better, technical link-up play is better. He is promising a big career, it's always a sign when the numbers are better year after year.

“We've just played against Neymar, Messi and Suarez, so [Lukaku] give us another headache. Our defenders should take encouragement from the performance they put in against Barcelona.”
