‘Overplayed’ Chelsea Could Rest Romelu Lukaku Against Malmö

Posted by

After stating that Romelu Lukaku’s goal drought is due to mental strain, Thomas Tuchel has revealed he is considering resting the Chelsea striker.

Following joining Chelsea from Internazionale last summer, Lukaku was seen as the final piece in the jigsaw, but his performances have slipped after an auspicious start. Tuchel must decide whether to give the £97.5m forward another chance when the European champions play Malmö in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

“We are in the process of adapting to each other,” Chelsea’s manager said. “I feel Romelu is a bit overplayed. I think he played in too many competitions over the summer. He played the Nations League and he is a fantastic athlete and such a competitive guy that he never takes it easy.
