Lukaku and Barkley have been phenomenal going forward this season.

Everton becoming one of the Premier League's most feared attacking sides

Published Add your comment

This season, Roberto Martinez's Everton have netted the fourth most goals in the Premier League, scoring 36 and just three less than top scorers Manchester City.

And whilst the Toffees have often failed to secure the results they arguably deserve, there's little doubt their exhilarating and attack-minded football has captured the attention of football fans across England this season.

The attacking trio of Romelu Lukaku, Gerard Deulofeu and Ross Barkley has been largely to thank for this and have become one of the most feared front lines in the Premier League.

With his quick feet and trickery, Deulofeu has provided a constant threat throughout the season whilst laying chance after chance on for Lukaku and Barkley, who have been clinical in front of goal.

Twenty-three goals and 19 assists between them is an incredible return after just 21 games this season - and their form shows no signs of slowing down.

Strength in depth is certainly apparent at Goodison Park too, with the likes of Kevin Mirallas, Steven Naismith, Aaron Lennon, Leon Osman and Steven Pienaar all waiting in the wings to be given their chance and capable of adding something different to Everton's attack.

Martinez has forged a side capable of beating any team in the league thanks to the sheer speed and precision in which they attack, even if defensive frailties remain.

And what's even more promising for the Toffees is Lukaku and Barkley are just 22-year-olds, whilst Deulofeu is a year younger. The three have huge futures ahead of them - whether they lie on Merseyside is an entirely different question.
