The Belgium striker's remarkable record put Everton level with West Ham in 10th place in the standings.

After a droll, scoreless first half at Upton Park, Stewart Downing swapped passes with Alex Song to open the scoring for the hosts, but six minutes later, Lukaku crossed to Leon Osman, who, with his back to goal, controlled the ball and volleyed in the equalizer.

Lukaku settled the issue heading in substitute Aiden McGeady's cross.
