Chelsea star Romelu Lukaku outlines his biggest strength
Lukaku’s Chelsea stint
Romelu Lukaku would of course return to Chelsea over the summer following two super seasons with Inter Milan, the last of which saw him clinch the Serie A title.
The Belgian returned to the Premier League with a point to prove following his poor end to his Manchester United stint.
And, so far, Lukaku is certainly showcasing he is much improved from his last period in England.
The Belgian, despite Chelsea having a torrid run of fixtures that has already seen them face Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and Juventus, has already scored three in six in the Premier League and one in two in the Champions League.
Romelu Lukaku’s biggest strength
And, with Chelsea’s run of games set to be much easier following the international break, it is likely we will see the 28-year-old improve upon his already decent goal tally for the Blues.
Ahead of his return to action with Belgium and then Chelsea, Lukaku has been speaking about his biggest strength.
And though he is aware everyone believes he is a target man-like figure due to his size, Lukaku actually believes that his biggest strength is that he is dangerous when facing towards goal because that is when he rarely makes wrong choices:
“The way I’m built – I’m quite big – everybody thinks I’m a sort of target man: just holding up the ball and being a goal poacher. But I’ve never played that way and I hate it.
“My biggest strength is that I’m dangerous when I’m facing towards the goal, because that’s when I rarely make wrong choices.
“After I pass the ball, I know where I have to position myself in the box. I can do a bit of everything and in some games when I know there is a lot of space behind the defence, I play differently.
“The reason I’m so productive [in front of goal] is because I can do a bit of everything.”
