Summer signing Romelu Lukaku was back to his brilliant best against Aston Villa, as he scored a goal and won a penalty in Chelsea’s comeback win over Aston Villa.

Coming off the bench at half-time, Lukaku provided a focal point for the team and his movement was excellent.

For the first goal, Lukaku outsmarted Tyrone Mings with his movement to make the space to head in Hudson-odoi’s cross just after 10 minutes of being introduced, and then he made a powerful run as he beat two defenders after receiving a pass from deep, and it led to the penalty.

Lukaku has now urged his forward players how to get the best of him. According to the Belgian, good crosses into the box and passes into space are his best kind of balls.

Explaining his goal, Lukaku said: “The goal was just movement.

“For balls like crosses and stuff, throughout the years my movement in the box has gotten better. I try to be less static, I try to be on the move all the time. The cross was a brilliant cross and I just came across him.

“For the penalty, that’s my preferred action, running into space and using my speed and my power. The defender made contact and then Jorgi finished it off for us.”
