3 Ways Chelsea Would Line-Up This Season After Finally Signing Romelu Lukaku

The Blues have officially announced the signing of Romelu Lukaku, who returns to Stamford Bridge after leading Inter Milan to the Serie A.

Here’s how Thomas Tuchel could use the 28-year-old in the 2021-22 season.

Option 1 – With Our New No.9

Ways Chelsea Would Line-Up This Season

Goals, goals, goals – this is what Tuchel will definitely demand from Rom as why would the Blues break their transfer record on a new striker with the likes of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, and Tammy Abraham in the squad?

Thus, it’s all but confirmed that Lukaku will lead Chelsea’s front-three next term if he eventually returns to the Bridge – here’s how he could do it.

Option 2 – Playing With Wide Forward

Rom is no stranger to playing on the left with an attacking midfielder operating as a false 9 as this is how Roberto Martinez lined up his Belgium XI at this summer’s European Championship.

The Belgian also covered this position at times at Manchester United and Inter so it would be no surprise to see him on the left-wing and Havertz through the middle.

Option 3: Traditional wingers on the side, Lukaku leads the line

The truth is Kai Havertz would rather player behind the striker and Werner prefers to play as a center-forward. But Tuchel could decide to play traditional wingers instead of the Germans.

In that case, they would open the door for Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic to play regularly out wide, in their preferred positions.

Christian Pulisic can be quite direct. He has the pace and power to shoot. As for Ziyech, his technique is simply world-class and his crosses to Lukaku as well as his movement in the final third could lead to a lot of goals.
