Former Chelsea winger Shaun Wright-Phillips believes Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku will make the difference for the Blues in the Premier League title race.
Wright-Phillips told the PA news agency: “For me, they’ve added a piece that was missing to their jigsaw.
“With Lukaku you know if he’s getting chances, you know he’ll score more than 20 goals a season if not more. They missed that last year because I think their top goalscorer was on like six or seven goals.
“He is just a learner of the game and I think he studies and always asks questions of the game. He won’t do anything less than score goals at Chelsea.”
Asked if a stint in Italy’s Serie A had made Lukaku a better striker, former Manchester City favourite Wright-Phillips said: “It looks like he has taken on board all the advice he has been given and I think he’s matured as a player and that has shown in his game.
“What I liked about him against Arsenal was that was the first time in a long time in a game where I’ve seen an actual number nine do what a number nine is supposed to do.
“Hold the ball up, bring other players into the game, his first goal that he scored was one you typically see in training.”
