Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel has Romelu Lukaku theory after lacklustre Crystal Palace display

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel claims that Romelu Lukaku’s struggles against Crystal Palace are not down to his chosen system. It was another ineffective afternoon for the Belgian, who has struggled to recreate the form he showed at Inter Milan during his two-season stint in Italy.

The Blues were made to sweat for the three points on Saturday, with a late Hakim Ziyech volley coming to the rescue.

Palace were ultimately unlucky to come away from the tie with nothing, after conjuring up a spirited performance to keep Chelsea at bay for the first 88 minutes.

Lukaku was kept quiet by the defensive duo of Joachim Andersen and former Blue, Marc Guehi.

After a first half which saw him touch the ball twice, one being the game’s initial kick-off, he only racked up a further five touches in the second half.
