Some Tottenham fans mock Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku at Stamford Bridge
Tottenham fans at the Chelsea ground on Sunday have moved to mock Romelu Lukaku with a chant.
The chant in question, sung at the Belgian who was starting for the Blues on Sunday, was as follows: “Romelu Lukaku, he’s Inter Milan.”

This, of course, comes on the back of that Romelu Lukaku interview.
For those not familiar, Romelu Lukaku did a pretty controversial interview that was released at the back end of December.
The interview, held by Sky Italia, caused quite a stir amongst the Chelsea faithful, not all that surprising when taking into account Lukaku’s comments:
Romelu Lukaku to @SkySport: “Physically I am fine. But I’m NOT happy with the situation at Chelsea. Tuchel has chosen to play with another system – I won’t give up, I’ll be professional. I am not happy with the situation but I am professional – and I can’t give up now”. 🔵 #CFC pic.twitter.com/KGNoJ10cwp

In the same interview, Lukaku expressed his desire to play for Inter again whilst also stating he loves the Italian club: “I don’t think any of it should have happened the way it did. The way I left Inter and the way I communicated with the Inter fans.
“I’m annoyed about that because it’s not the right time now but it wasn’t the right time when I left either. “I always said that I love Inter and I’ll play for them again. I really hope so. I fell in love with Italy.”
Chelsea vs Tottenham
Chelsea fans, though, will be hopeful Lukaku can put his poor form behind him on Sunday to fire their side past Spurs.
The score is currently locked at 0-0 but Chelsea have had the better of the game so far.
As has become fairly common of late, however, the west Londoners have not taken any of the chances created.
