Romelu Lukaku has returned to the squad in good form with his name back on the scoresheet for Aston Villa as he headed in the second goal for Chelsea in the 3-1 win. He also helped win the penalty in stoppage time, which Jorginho converted for the victory.
Asked to analyse his goal and the foul he earned in the box, Lukaku told Chelseafc.com: “The goal was just movement.
“For balls like crosses and stuff, throughout the years my movement in the box has gotten better. I try to be less static, I try to be on the move all the time. The cross was a brilliant cross and I just came across him.
“For the penalty, that’s my preferred action, running into space and using my speed and my power. The defender made contact and then Jorgi finished it off for us.”
Callum Hudson-Odoi was the creator for the first goal – he explained after the game that Chelsea need to use Lukaku’s strengths in the box more by crossing or giving the ball at his feet for him to beat his defender.
Let’s hope that Lukaku’s movement and finishing continue to improve and he can keep on scoring goals for the Blues.
