“He has shown his abilities,” Marcos Alonso said of Romelu Lukaku in an interview with Chelsea’s website. “He is so strong and he scores goals.
“Of course he is one of the best in his position and it’s great to have him with us. It will be a tough fight [for the Golden Boot] but of course, he’s got a chance.
“If the whole team will deliver for him and be together and put in performances like this, he’s just going to have to score the goals and we will see at the end of the season.
“You see all the good teams in the last few teams who have won the league, they’ve had someone in the top scorers’ list.
“That’s what we will have with Lukaku this season, I’m sure. Hopefully, he will help us achieve bigger things and score as many goals as he can.”
Romelu will face a lot of competition for the Golden Boot this season just like the one he had with Cristiano Ronaldo last season in Serie A.
Currently, Bruno Fernandes and Michail Antonio are the top scorers in the Premier League with 4 goals each.
On the other hand, Romelu Lukaku, Mo Salah, Demarai Gray, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, and Mason Greenwood have netted 3 times.
