“Chelsea would have defeated Man Utd if this player started” – Ian Wright reveals

According to Arsenal legend Ian Wright, Chelsea would have defeated Manchester United if Romelu Lukaku had started.

The Blues created lots of chances but wasted them as we were held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester United.

“I did [want Lukaku to be on the pitch sooner],” the former England international told BBC MOTD.

“If he had started that game or played longer, he [would have] scored simply because of his movements and the fact that he [would have] taken those chances.

“Chelsea looked like the Chelsea of last season. They got to a certain level and they weren’t finishing.

“That’s what happened today, and they needed Lukaku.”
