Lukaku: It’s my dream since I was 11 to score at Stamford Bridge

Despite spending the majority of his time in the Premier League, Romelu Lukaku has never managed to score at Stamford Bridge.

That changed against Aston Villa on Saturday as Lukaku scored twice in Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Lukaku said: “It’s my dream since I was 11 [to score here]. I’ve worked hard for this moment.

“I’m very happy for the win. It was an important game for us. We showed the will to win from the first minute and I’m very happy with the result.

“In Italy, I was playing in a league where I maybe had one or two chances a game, so I had to take them. I’m very happy with the situation I’m in and we keep going.

“Villa were very good and pressed hard, especially us three up front. They made life very difficult for us. It’s great. It’s a childhood dream for me. I’m very happy in this situation, but the work has to keep going.”
