The Everton striker displayed the finishing skills which have made him the Premier League's joint-top scorer in a meeting with the ex-England defender

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku gave Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher the run around during a display of his lethal finishing skills.

In contrast, Lukaku is 23 and currently the Premier League’s joint-top goalscorer with 17 efforts to his name this season.

The burly frontman is clearly comfortable on both sides, with the ball rifled into the back of the net once he creates a yard of space.

Lukaku has been in blistering form of late, with eight goals plundered – including four in a 6-3 win over Bournemouth – since the turn of the year to take him onto 23 for the season for club and country.
