Thomas Tuchel advised to drop Romelu Lukaku in Man City clash

Kai Havertz should start ahead of Lukaku in Man City clash.

After his recent apology, the Belgian striker has been restored to the Chelsea lineup and featured in both Carabao Cup semi-finals against Tottenham Hotspur.

Former England midfielder Fara Williams believes the manager should rather opt for Kai Havertz instead of Lukaku in Man City clash.

“I think Kai Havertz could be a better shout against Man City than Lukaku,” Williams told Premier League productions.

“It’s hard to say that because, look, if you were to ask me earlier on in the season who to start, when Lukaku was in form and scoring goals, it would be easy.

“So of course it would be a big decision but Lukaku looks like a player lacking confidence. He looks like a player who is desperate to show he wants to be there.

“He was so desperate against Tottenham to show Chelsea fans that he wanted to be there. But in that desperation, you don’t perform. When you put too much expectation on yourself it can be hard to deliver.

“He was working hard off the ball which we haven’t seen often but that’s not his game.

“I feel like he’s not at the levels that Havertz is at right now. And Chelsea need everyone at their best to beat Man City.”
