Lukaku has reached his tally in 100 fewer games than Ferguson who was idolised by Everton fans and is now on the club's coaching staff.

The opening 45 minutes continued in a rather pedestrian manner as the hosts monopolised possession but looked to bide their time and wait for an opening rather than force the issue, whilst Moyes was happy to let his side sit back and soak up the pressure. "I'm sure we have one to come", he added.

"We need more goals from our midfielders".
