Romelu Lukaku has struggled for form since signing for Chelsea, after a £97.5m move from Inter Milan.

Lukaku however looked a bit of his old self when he scored a brace against Wolves.

Lukaku was brilliant against Wolves as he won and scored a penalty, before going on to bang in a second goal with finesse. Unfortunately, Chelsea lost their lead and played a 2-2 draw.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has hailed Romelu Lukaku and has backed him to regain form.

Tuchel said: “Romelu has been scoring goals since he was six years old. It is in his body. This is what I tell him all the time – trust your body, trust your brain, trust your instincts.

“You never forget how to score, but he needs a spark and hopefully this was it. Many strikers once they start thinking it is not a good thing because they should trust their instincts. It starts a cycle where it is hard to climb out.

“But Romelu is very committed in training, and as a team player. That is what we love about him. No ego at all.”
