Like what, a season sometimes hangs by a thread. Criticized since his arrival at Chelsea, Romelu Lukaku seems to be living again for a week with the Blues. This weekend, Big Rom’ scored twice against Wolverhampton. Enough to allow his club to take a point against Leander Dendoncker.
Facing Leeds on Tuesday, Thomas Tuchel chose to ride the wave. And he decided to start his striker for the second time. He took it well because he was involved in the opener thanks to a nice deflection at the start of the action.
With his team leading 0-2, he then pulled off an in-form play. Found in the axis, we thought that his missed control would prevent him from scoring his little goal. By keeping the leather classy, then sending a veritable mine through the ceiling, he proved a whole stadium wrong. A goal from a man who wants to save his season. And, above all, to regained confidence.
Despite a disappointing season, the Red Devil scored their eighth league goal.
