John Barnes has reassured Chelsea fans that club-record signing and star striker Romelu Lukaku will ‘come good’ and that his form ‘won’t be an issue’ in the remainder of the season.
Lukaku hit the ground running after joining from Inter Milan last summer but he has struggled in his last two games for Chelsea, against Brighton and Manchester City.
“Romelu Lukaku can turn it around at Chelsea and he won’t come to blows with Thomas Tuchel because Tuchel is in control,” Barnes told BonusCodeBets.
“They will come to blows if Lukaku thinks he is as big as the manager and thinks he can go head-to-head and battle with the manager, much like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mikel Arteta.
“Tuchel is in charge and Lukaku can turn it around. He’s struggled in the last couple of games but he’s still had injuries and missed a few games, but it won’t be an issue.
“At this moment in time, Chelsea are still fighting on four fronts and Lukaku will come good again.”
