Lukaku’s treble propels Everton to 3-0 win over Sunderland

London [England], Sept 13 : Romelu Lukaku netted a scintillating hat-trick as he propelled Everton to a 3-0 win over a hapless Sunderland side at the Stadium of Light.

The Belgian striker ended an 11-game goal drought by clinically dispatching two headers from well-worked Idrissa Gueye and Yannick Bolasie crosses in the second half, the Mirror reported.

Lukaku then completed his hat-trick in 11 minutes when he calmly side-footed the ball past Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

With the win, Everton climbed up to third in the points table while Sunderland are languishing down at the bottom.
