Lukaku Starting To Look More And More Like Drogba

Romelu Lukaku has been a bit of an enigma since he joined the Blues in August 2011 from Belgian side Anderlecht but this is mainly because he has been starved of opportunities with the Blues first team, spending most of the 2011-2012 season playing for the reserves. At the beginning of this season he agreed a year long loan deal with West Brom after complaining bitterly about the lack of chances he was expecting with the first team.

Well Lukaku has certainly been delivering for West Brom this season and tonight was no exception as he terrorised the Liverpool defense after replacing midfielder Graham Dorrans and topped it all off with an awesome goal, as he proceeded to beat Pepe Reina with a thumping finish into the corner of the goal, after James Morrison put him in on goal. It was his 10th Premier League goal of the season and the icing on the cake for his team’s win over Liverpool.

Lukaku was virtually unplayable on the night and his hold-up play was key as West Brom tried to maintain possession and kill off the game after going ahead through a Gareth McAuley header with 10 minutes left. You could not help but think of Blues legend Didier Drogba, as you watched Lukaku dominate proceedings with his physical presence and his goal was sheer class and he knew it as he went to gloat with the traveling West Brom support at Anfield. The Belgian forward had several chances on goal on the night and looked threatening each time he got the ball, so his goal came as no surprise.

Lukaku has recently been saying positive things about Chelsea and how he is looking forward to returning to Stamford Bridge and on this kind of form Fernando Torres should be a little concerned as with an in-form Demba Ba and a Drogba-esque Romelu Lukaku to choose from he may find his chances reduced as the starting Chelsea centre-forward next season.

    Yes. Lulaku should be brought back to Chelsea’s 1st team. Hopefully he is not an egoist like Sturridge.

  • Danie Says:

    If Lukaku is to be brought back to Chelsea,then i see no reason why we should spend £47 Million on Falcao.

    Lets get real for a minute. Playing in his favourite position Lukaku has scored LESS goals than Frank Lampard playing out of position this season! Why bring him back to only sit on the bench? The lad is STILL learning his craft and progressing nicely. He should STAY out on loan for another season getting as much first team football as possible. This time next season and with a bit of luck he will be ready to absolutely ‘walk’ into the Chelsea first team ‘if’ his footballing and goal scoring form continues. Hopefully he will finish this season on 12 to 15 goals and next season nearer the 20 goal mark.

    I have always been the fans of Lukaku right from time. If he is not given chances now then when is he going to get it, is it when we might have made another huge wrong investment in bringing Falcao.

  • Godwin Says:

    Chelsea fc must be the foolish club on earth to allow their future goalkeeper go for facoa who have few year to play, courteous is the best young keeper in Europa. Bring lukaku back and allowed useless Torres to go, Blues is the colour of my blood

  • Chris Says:

  • Deefikzy Says:

  • cmon you blues Says:

    @alan frank – you please get real. look at goals in open play, because that is where lukaku will contribute. you are comparing goal scoring tallies of someone (lamps) who takes all pk’s and majority of free kicks v a kid who starts and subs, works his socks off, and brings you goals from the front line (where chelsea have clearly been lacking).
