Chelsea’s creative players need to support Romelu Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku’s return to Chelsea was one of the biggest stories of the summer, but he needs more support from the creative players in the squad in the weeks and months ahead.

The Belgian’s introduction to Thomas Tuchel’s European champions has elevated the side even further and will undoubtedly give them a more clinical and powerful goal outlet up top.

But, if he’s going to prove the difference for the Blues this campaign, their creators have to provide regular service and not rely on one moment of quality from an unpredictable source – whish is exactly what happened in Chelsea’s eventual 1-0 victory over Zenit on Tuesday night.

Tuchel’s men kicked off their Champions League campaign with a win, although should by no means be satisfied with the performance. When it came to adding a spark in dangerous areas, it was underwhelming, not clinical enough and, quite frankly, boring.
