Jose Mourinho trolled after Romelu Lukaku nets a hat-trick

Published 3 Comments

Somehow, another transfer window has come and gone and Romelu Lukaku is still an Everton player.

The Belgian has had a pretty interesting week, initially filled with reports he had fallen out with the Toffees over a row concerning who should foot the bill for his private jet.

It's just as well those rumours appear to be wide of the mark, as he looked a happy man in the 3-0 win over Sunderland.

The striker put on a footballing masterclass, scoring an 11-minute hat-trick to secure Ronald Koeman's men the three points at the Stadium of Light.

Everton fans will be absolutely delighted that they managed to hold onto their prize asset this summer, but there was another group of Premier League supporters who were forced to sit up and take notice of Lukaku's performance.

Chelsea not only allowed the forward to leave when Jose Mourinho was still in charge, they then failed in their attempts to resign him this summer.

In the first half, that didn't seem like too great a shortcoming, as he looked set to stretch his goalless run to 14 games.

Take a look at his goals here: 

No-one should have written him off, though, as some fans were perhaps a little too hasty to mock his performance.

And it wasn't long before Twitter changed its tune, with numerous fans all making a similar point about Mourinho's terrible decision all those years ago.

It hasn't helped that another player the Special One sold, Kevin de Bruyne, came back to haunt him with a sensational performance in the Manchester derby.

However, Monday night's social media was all about Lukaku. Jose - and even Antonio Conte - you might want to look away.

Incidentally, Lukaku had also taken to Twitter before the game to deny those private jet rumours.

Everton will be doing whatever they can to keep him happy now as he looks to get back to his best consistently. If that happens, it's going to be difficult watching for Mourinho, and Chelsea could be left to rue their failure to splash the cash over the summer.
