Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel made a huge call to drop star striker Romelu Lukaku for the game against Liverpool following his controversial interview with Sky Italia.

Chelsea managed to play a 2-2 draw with the Reds, but former Arsenal striker Kevin Campbell believes dropping Lukaku was a huge mistake.

“I understand Thomas Tuchel has to show his power,” Campbell told Sky Sports News.

“But if you are all of a sudden going to leave your star striker out, you are cutting your nose off to spite your face a little bit.

“You need all your weapons. Look at Manchester City, they are 11 points clear. This is your next biggest rival who you have to beat at home and you are possibly leaving your star striker out.

“It’s not right. You have got to play him.”
