Romelu Lukaku has marked his return to Chelsea with a sign that he’s now one of the best strikers in the world.

Three goals in three matches is the Belgian’s current tally for Chelsea, and he has shown that he can be the difference maker for the Blues, and the missing piece of the jigsaw.

It’s not only Lukaku who’s grabbing the headlines as Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo recently had a much talked-about debut, as he scored a brace in his second debut at Old Trafford.

Many are now beginning to predict who will score the most goals this season as the race for the Golden Boot has started already.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has admitted that he doesn’t really care who scores more between the two as long as Lukaku keeps scoring for Chelsea.

When asked who will score more goals, Lukaku or Ronaldo, Tuchel joked: “I couldn’t care less as long as Lukaku scores for us.”

The German then added on a more serious note: “Honestly, I know you’d like to have a good answer but unfortunately, I don’t have one. Lukaku was decisive for us today and that is what we are looking for. He wants to score for Chelsea, help the team with his goals, that is what he did today.

“That is why he is here. He is not shy to speak this ambition out loud because he is full of confidence and is the kind of personality that can handle it. This is what he showed in the first games and today.”
