Lukaku explains how he beat former teammate Tuanzebe black and blue

Romelu Lukaku scored a brace as Chelsea defeated Aston Villa 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The 28-year-old amazed fans as he scored with both feet for his two stunning goals.

Lukaku is naturally a left footer, but for his first goal he scored with his right foot.

Lukaku had to beat Axel Tuanzebe for his first goal and it wasn’t an easy feat as he knows the Villa defender from his time at Manchester United.

Lukaku admitted that Tuanzebe would have been expecting him to shoot with his left foot which made him cut the ball and shoot with his right.

Lukaku said of his goal: “It was something the coach was saying before the game, that when we recovered the ball he wanted us to play forward very quickly and Kova, with his quality, I wasn’t doubting him.

“I made the run, he saw it and it was a brilliant pass, the rest was just instinct.

“I played with Tuanzebe back in the day, he knows I’m left-footed, so I felt like maybe he wouldn’t be expecting it.

“The contact was good (for the second goal), I hit it cleanly, and the touch was good, I got it out of my feet quickly. I think that’s just work. A lot of goals, they are good finishes and good touches, and that just comes from good training.”
