Lukaku scores in injury time to lead Everton over West Ham United, 2-1

LONDON (AP) — Romelu Lukaku struck yet again for Everton against West Ham, scoring the 2-1 winner in injury time in the English Premier League on Saturday.

Lukaku has scored six times in six games for Everton against West Ham, four in four this season.

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.
