Lukakul has yet to start a game in the Premier League since returning to fitness.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been criticised over his game management of Romelu Lukaku. Lukaku is Chelsea’s highest signing and joined the club in the last transfer window.
The Belgium international has yet to start a game in the Premier League since returning to fitness. He was only handed a three-minute cameo against Leeds United in the 3-2 win last weekend.
Former Aston Villa captain Gabby Agbonlahor said to talkSPORT, “I think Thomas Tuchel needs a kick up the backside as well because I’m looking at Lukaku, a £90million striker, on the bench again today.”
“He’s played 78 minutes in four Premier League games. Lukaku wasn’t out for five months, he was out for five games.
“I’ve been there, if you’ve been out for five games after one game where you come on for 20 minutes, you’re ready to start.
“It doesn’t take another four games and you’re playing someone like Werner in front of him who is not a Chelsea player, nowhere near, because he’s been miles off it since he’s come to Chelsea. Not been good enough. The odd game he’ll score a good goal but nowhere near good enough.”
