Everton's loan signing Romelu Lukaku has admitted that he wants his new side to beat Chelsea this weekend, despite only swapping Stamford Bridge for Merseyside last Monday.
The Belgian forward made a deadline-day switch to Goodison Park in search of regular first-team football in the Premier League, with Blues boss Jose Mourinho unable to guarantee him a starting spot in West London.
Mourinho urged Lukaku to join Everton over former club West Bromwich Albion, who also made a late bid to renew a fruitful partnership from last season which saw the powerhouse score 17 goals in the top flight.
Lukaku's parent club travel to Everton in the Premier League this weekend, with the striker ineligible to feature under the terms of his season-long loan.
Roberto Martinez's side go into the match searching for their first league win of the season and the Spaniard's first league success at Goodison Park.
Reduced to the role of spectator on Saturday evening Lukaku has revealed that he wants Everton to earn a victory over Mourinho's men to get their campaign up and running.
When asked by Everton's official club website if he wanted the Toffees to win this weekend Lukaku said: "Yes, I have to be honest."
The 20-year-old reported for training at Finch Farm for the first time today, but must wait until at least next weekend for the chance to make his Everton debut, when Martinez's side take on West Ham United.
