Romelu Lukaku kept up his hot scoring streak by grabbing a late winner for Everton to beat Manchester City 2-1 in the first leg of their English League Cup semifinal on Wednesday.

Lukaku restored Everton's lead in a thrilling second half at Goodison Park, two minutes after substitute Jesus Navas equalized for City on a counterattack led by Sergio Aguero.

Defender Ramiro Funes Mori put Everton ahead in first-half injury time when he steered home the rebound after Ross Barkley's shot was parried out.

Lukaku, who hobbled off with an apparent injury soon after scoring, has 19 goals this season. He's failed to score in only two of his last 12 games.
