Romelu Lukaku Finally Score At Stanford Bridge As Chelsea Beat Villa 3-Nill

Posted by

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku said scoring at Stamford Bridge is something he has dreamed about since he was a child, after netting twice in Chelsea’s win over Aston Villa.

The Belgian scored his first ever goals at the stadium either side of a Mateo Kovacic strike as Thomas Tuchel’s side maintained their unbeaten start to the season.

He added: “I was up and down at the start [of my career] but I’ve found a certain consistency in the last three years. With experience and hard work, I just keep on working. “It’s a good start but we have to keep working. We know this year’s going to be very competitive. A lot of teams are going to be fighting for the title.”

Lukaku kissed the club badge as he celebrated his opener in front of Blues fans after beating Villa goalkeeper Jed Steer on his 15th appearance at Stamford Bridge overall.

The Belgian’s clinical finish through Steer’s legs came from a precise pass from Kovacic inside his own half. Lukaku sealed the win for Chelsea in injury time with a powerful finish down from the edge of the box.
