Chelsea paid a club record fee to sign back Romelu Lukaku, and the Belgian is in top form at the moment.

Lukaku has now scored three goals in his last four matches upon his return from injury, and he’s looking very much like the man Chelsea paid big bucks to sign.

Lukaku scored Chelsea’s goal against Brighton and was a constant threat all through the game.

Following his contribution, Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount has admitted he was glad to have back Lukaku and that the Belgian is a big plus for the team.

“Having Rom back is a big plus for us,” Mount said.

“You can see how good he is and the impact he has. He’s important, we know what he brings to the team. He’s a top player and a top guy, so it’s a big boost for us.

“He’s a big target man and he holds the ball up. He makes it so easy for us to work off him and run off him. He’s so dominant and he’s scoring, which is what we want from him. Hopefully that continues because there’s obviously a massive game coming up next.”
