From Goal Drought To Injury – Should Chelsea Be Worried About Romelu Lukaku?

Since scoring against Zenit St Petersburg last month, Chelsea’s club record signing Romelu Lukaku hasn’t been very fruitful in front of goals firing blank in his last 6 games for the Blues. However, it was expected that the Belgian would rediscover his scoring boots against Malmo in the Champions league yesterday, but his participation in the game was cut short in the 19 minute following a horror challenge from Lasse Nielsen. The result was an injury for Lukaku and a penalty for Chelsea which was converted by Jorginho.

The 28 year old was replaced by Kai Havertz thus killing any hope he had of ending his goal drought. It has now being confirmed by Thomas Tuchel that Lukaku suffered an ankle twist and will be out for a few weeks. For a player who went from a goalless run to picking up an Injury, it begs the question, should the European Champions be worried about Romelu Lukaku?.

However, looking at Chelsea’s upcoming fixtures over the next 17 days, Tuchel will be glad their opponents do not include a side in the top half of the Premier league and in Europe as Malmo are the closest to a strong team that they will face again on November 2nd. But given the fact that Romelu Lukaku’s setback was accompanied by a hamstring Injury to Timo Werner, Chelsea’s attacking options has now grown thin all of a sudden.

The Chelsea’s number 9 may not have scored in the 6 games he played prior to yesterday’s match, but there’s no questioning the threat he carries up front and how his presence makes it easy for his teammates to find the back of the net even when he wasn’t scoring. Needful to say that the Belgian will be a big miss for the Blues and for the weeks that he will be unavailable, Tuchel must improvise a plan to keep the team going.
