Everything Thomas Tuchel Said About Lukaku As Chelsea Beat Arsenal At Emirates Stadium

Blues manager Thomas Tuchel has heaped praises on new club-record acquisition Romelu Lukaku, following his impressive displays which saw the Belgian striker score on his second debut for Chelsea, as they defeated North London outfit Arsenal 2-0.

The victory saw Chelsea continue their brilliant start to the 2021/2022 season, after victories over Villarreal in the UEFA Super Cup, Crystal Palace and now Arsenal in the Premier League. The Blues now have six points from two games thus far.

When Thomas Tuchel was asked about the link-up play that Lukaku brings to Chelsea, he replied: “I think his profile gives us something that we did not have so much. We can overcome pressing with long balls. When we are close to the box we can also play into him with some defenders on his back because he is a very physical player.

He also suits out strengths for counter attacks because he likes to run in to open spaces. He was involved in training, involved with the guys. He is a very open and smart and friendly person. It was easy to connect with everybody. They like to play with each other. This is very important. He gives us some more opportunities. At the same time we need to keep going.”

“He was always a Chelsea fan and his dream is to make it at this club. He has this personality and he has this trust in himself. I hope it takes pressure off our young guys’ shoulders.”

“It was a verygood start. When a striker scores right away and to give us an important lead. He links up well. He was dangerous throughout the whole game. He almost scored the second one. Was a very good debut. He linked up very well.”
