Romelu Lukaku aims to show Jose Mourinho his ability by scoring more goals than any of Chelsea's strikers while on loan at Everton.

Chelsea's strikers are yet to score in the Premier League this term - Fernando Torres is the only one to find the net this season, notching twice, while Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba are still to find the target - as Lukaku has bagged four for Everton.

Lukaku last week insisted in a British newspaper he approached Mourinho about leaving Stamford Bridge temporarily, while the Portuguese said playing well for Everton and Chelsea was a different matter.

I want to score more goals than the Chelsea strikers. We will see at the end of the season who made the best choice.

Now Lukaku, who signed from Anderlecht in August 2011 and spent last term on loan at West Bromwich Albion, has suggested Mourinho should have told him to stay at Chelsea.

The 20-year-old told Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad: "The coach decides and as a player you have to respect that.

"I chose to leave and it's up to me to prove the coach wrong. The only thing I can do is play well and score a lot. And then I think people will say that I'm a good player.
