Terry warns Lukaku will have a point to prove

Terry warns Lukaku will have a point to prove

As we face off with Everton this Saturday at Goodison Park in Week 3 of the Barclays Premier League, captain John Terry, in consonance with what Steven Naismith said a couple of days ago, warns that Romelu Lukaku will have a point to prove.


The bulky 21-year-old Belgian, having spent the previous two seasons on loan at West Bromwich Albion and Everton, made a permanent move to the Toffees this summer having failed to secure first team football at Stamford Bridge, and Terry while fielding questions from the press is of the opinion his former team mate will be out to settle scores in the match.


"We`ve struggled away to Everton in the last couple of years," said Terry.

"With that in mind we know it`s going to be tough.

"Obviously big Rom [Lukaku] will be up front as well, with a point to prove - him being sold from the club.

"And they [Everton] are going to be up for it; they always believe they can turn us over at home.

"It`s a big test for us, but we go there with a one-game-at-a-time mentality, and try and move on from there."


With Lukaku having reunited yesterday with another ex-Blue in Samuel
Eto`o, who himself will undoubtedly be aiming to prove his own point, this promises to be one helluva match up too vital for our league campaign.


The big kick off is at 17:30 hours BST [GMT +1] and for some, especially with Diego Costa set to miss out due to injury and Fernando Torres all but off to Milan for an overdue change of scenery, this is when our Premier League credentials will be well and truly tested.


But do you think anyone of them has got the balls to hurt us?
Do you see this match as pivotal to our season?

All matches are pivotal to how our season shapes up. Lukaku has nothing on Costa (who will play) or even the old Drog. I fear facing Eto'o not Mr. Complete. We'll win the game though.
