The Inter Milan forward scored a brace at St Mary’s and a goal from Ross Barkley secured the three points for Ronald Koeman’s side and their first win on the south coast in over a decade.
His first two shots on target resulted in two goals and the Blues counter-attacked to a devastating effect.
His best season at the club was during his final one where he went on to score 25 Premier League goals in 37 games, with the Belgium international only missing one game during the 2016/17 campaign.
Our #GoalOfTheDay⚽️ comes from Romelu Lukaku in an 3-0 Everton win down at St Mary’s in 2015.
