Despite touching the ball just 25 times, less than any other outfield player, Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku scored twice as Chelsea beat Aston Villa 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admitted after the game that Lukaku was the difference for the Blues against Aston Villa.

“They were two very difficult goals, no easy tap-ins, and he made the difference for us,” Tuchel said.

“He adds something to the group we did not have, so we are very happy. We escaped with the perfect result; perfect for our striker.”
