Thomas Tuchel hints Romelu Lukaku is missing one key cog amid Chelsea’s dip in form

The defeats are the Blues’ first two of the season,

and during both games, Chelsea have also failed to

get the best out of star frontman Lukaku.

But there might be a pretty straightforward

explanation that starts and ends with midfield star


The England international has been out for the last

four games with an injury, and Blues boss Tuchel has

admitted Lukaku might be missing the midfielder’s


Asked about Chelsea missing Mount as a whole,

Tuchel said “We need to be careful. He had a rough

time at Tottenham. It is not time on single players.

“We of course miss Mason. The whole team missed

Kante and Mason, of course that’s why he plays.”

Tuchel was then asked about Lukaku’s dip in form,

and he replied: “He was fully involved in the very first

game, then the second half against Tottenham in chances and assisting.

“I think that also, football now is about connections

and Romelu I think feels a strong one with Mason

Mount and Mateo Kovacic, everyone else lacks it a little bit.”

Thankfully for Lukaku, Mount has now returned to

training and he is hoping to return sooner rather than later.
