Birmingham - Romelu Lukaku scored two goals and set up another against his former club as Everton rallied from two goals down to beat West Bromwich Albion 3-2 Monday in the Premier League.

Lukaku tapped in the winner in the 84th minute with his second attempt after a cross from Gerard Deulofeu to complete the second-half comeback and lift Everton to fifth in the standings.

Saido Berahino and Craig Dawson had put West Brom 2-0 up by the 54th minute, but Lukaku headed in Everton's first two minutes later and then set up Arouna Kone to level in the 75th.

Lukaku, who spent a season at loan at West Brom from Chelsea, was given an ovation by both sets of fans as he was substituted in the final minutes.

West Brom has just one point from four home games this season and is 15th in the table.
