“He’s working a lot for the team, doing lots of touches, but is a little bit unlucky,” Chelsea assistant manager Arno Michels said of Romelu Lukaku after the Plymouth game.
“We try to put him, give him opportunities and we will keep on going like this because he is an important player for us.
“He is our striker so he also needs some trust in moments he doesn’t score.”
Romelu Lukaku started the game today but was largely ineffective. He missed several chances and barely contributed to the build-up.
The Belgian is on a five-game goalless run, he has not scored since the Petersborough game on January 8.
Chelsea assistant manager Arno Michels was on the sidelines against Plymouth today as Thomas Tuchel tested positive for Covid before the game.
