"Nobody likes to play against him" - Tuchel on Lukaku
Lukaku's return to Chelsea is just getting started and he's already leaving his mark on the team. On Sunday, he scored a goal for Chelsea within 15 minutes.
Chelsea head coach Tuchel says that Romelu Lukaku adds another "dimension" to the game for Chelsea. Lukaku rejoined the team just last week, and in his second debut on Sunday, he scored a goal straight away, in Chelsea's 2-0 win against Arsenal.
Lukaku has described his return to the team as a dream come true for him, which really comes across in his playing. Not only is he a strong player and accurate striker, but his love for the team comes through on the field as well. Coach Tuchel, pleased with his performance, said, "everyone is aware of his physicality and his link-up play and ability to attack the space. He gives another dimension to our game."
But this is just the beginning. Though the game ended in a victory, the Arsenal defense played well and a second Lukaku goal was blocked by Bernd Leno.
“It has only just begun. So it is not the time now for too much praise or celebration, we keep on going," Tuchel said.
