Pure quality. Will be one of the best in the world soon. Meanwhile our Costa is being a prat and looks like he is turning into Suarez. Should reach 30 goals this season. Remarkable :clap:

I'm afraid not a lot of you will have seen the interview (let alone be able to understand a single word they say ). So here's the summary of the most important things that have been said: He's feeling

Big words from Drog.

Wrong shirt at the wrong moment Romelu

Well Played Son!!!

What a player.

Cant believe we had sold him. Cant believe people wanted him sold.

Hope this will shut up the fans who were happy to see him gone because of his "attitude".

Well, there was one striker who scored a worldie and made a dull 0-0 into 2-0 and another who was playing the wrong sport altogether.

Costa deserved all the stick he got until December, he was garbage and that's putting it lightly. Overall Lukaku has been having a much better season, he needs to forget how to play football completely for his season to end worse than Costa's. I think if both were on form, I'd still choose Costa in this moment, but Lukaku has two undeniable selling points compared to Diego - age and aerial play. Glad we have at least one of them (could have had both, but oh well).

This is not a knee-jerk reaction as Lukaku has been excellent all season but I think Costa and Lukaku are on the same level. Maybe even Lukaku better. Last season, I would have said Costa for sure. Lukaku has good dribbling skills, excellent strength, great hold up play (now), great finishing, runs the channels excellently. Just look at his goal today and against West Ham last week. Lukaku is great at scoring these type of goals. Costa scored a great goal against PSG but Lukaku is more rounded for me now.

Costa has been excellent in recent weeks but unfortunately just came a bit too late. I can't deny that Costa proved short term that Mourinho made the right decision but when you think about it long term, we invested in the best striker of his generation and sold him. And with Costa, there are constant rumours about him retuning to Madrid etc. Lukaku is/was a Chelsea fan and it is clear to see that he is going to be one of the best stikers in the world soon. Actually I would artgue he is up there now. He has everything.

I knew it was going to happen eventually when he scored against us and showed us what we really we were missing. Today was the day. Great performance and a shame he was not given time to do that here.

Put him in a TOP club, and he immediately will be.

Would love to see him in Juve instead of Mandzukic, making tandem with Dybala.

Good player but I still choose Costa over him.

Now I would love to have both in our team. 

It's a pity that we could have had that chance. Thank you Mourinho and board, good job.

Will be even more salt in the wound when he turns up at City or United. Nailed on to happen. Way too good to be at Everton long. 

Like KdB he will likely haunt us for years at a rival.

Well, not at United, since they'll have the "Special" One there next year.

Meh. He'll say "I always liked him and  wanted to give him a chance but the money was too good to turn down for someone who didn't start every game." He'd say something like "he's developed well since leaving" and say he's ready to be the #1 now.

I can definitely see it happening.

If I'm not mistaken this is the first match day since before Christmas where Lukaku scored and Costa didn't (when they both played) and like sow, back to Costas average and we should have kept Lukaku :lol: speechless, genuinely.

As for people saying "he didn't get a chance" he got more chances than what Traore has needed to elevate himself from 4th/5th choice to 2nd, just saying!!!!!!!!

True...there are lot of things to be very upset about, but Lukaku leaving is one of the least...

DeBruyne and Felipe Luis leaving was disappointing, but Lukaku... no, just no...

There is no Torres/Eto'o around to take that spot now. Also, Lukaku didn't want to be second choice so whether he's 2nd or 4th didn't really matter. He made the right choice. 

Lukaku scored 9 in 15, Costa 11 in 16 since Christmas. Don't kno about assists. Their stats are quite similar in 2016. The stats before Christmas are not worth comparing.
