Romelu Lukaku started his Chelsea career with a bang, as he scored four goals in his first four games for the club.

The £97.5m signing has been a massive signing for the Blues, and clubs are now trying to shut him out.

Lukaku has not scored in his last four games for Chelsea in all competitions, and he was tightly marked yet again in the Champions League clash against Juventus.

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has hailed the quality of the Chelsea striker and has also vowed to use Juventus tactics on him.

“It’s not only about being a beast against him but also being clever,” said Hasenhuttl on Lukaku.

“We have seen yesterday a very good example of how you can play against him.

“It is not possible to keep him out of the game for 90 minutes he will get a chance or two or whatever, but we must be there.

“He doesn’t need a lot of chances to score and for sure this is the player Chelsea were missing in the past and makes them definitely stronger.”
