Report: Chelsea Fan Produces Thread Of Romelu Lukaku ‘Mistakes’ As Supporters Turn On Blues Ace

Romelu Lukaku cut a frustrated figure on the pitch as Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton in the Premier League on Tuesday night – and one supporter was not impressed

Chelsea fans are beginning to get frustrated with Romelu Lukaku after he put in a poor performance against Brighton on Tuesday night.

Lukaku struggled to get involved in the Blues’ build-up play on the south coast as the Seagulls hit back to hold them to a 1-1 draw and leave them 12 points adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Hakim Ziyech fired the visitors into the lead with a low strike from outside the box which beat Robert Sanchez at the near post.

Brighton fought back after the break and levelled when Adam Webster powered in a free header from a corner in the 60th minute.

Thomas Tuchel reacted by making a triple-substitution in the 80th minute, taking off Lukaku, Ziyech and Jorginho for Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Mateo Kovacic, but it didn’t make any difference.

Lukaku was seen arguing with Ziyech on the pitch in the first half as the two stars struggled to link up.

And he looked disappointed with his performance when he joined his team-mates on the bench and one Chelsea fan had documented his efforts.

It didn’t make happy reading for the Belgian striker, who had just 18 touches of the ball, according to WhoScored.

Blues fan @ChelseaTy_ took no prisoners on Twitter with his thread which turned a magnifying glass on Lukaku’s performance.

“Misplaced pass gives the ball away. Gets tackled. Still walking around hopelessly,” he continued throughout the first half.

“Might as well not be there. Not touched the ball in a LONG time…”

It seems Lukaku’s frustration is shared by the supporters, whose opinion may have shifted since his ill-advised interview with Italian media last month.

“Physically I’m fine. But I’m not happy with the situation at Chelsea,” he told Sky Sports Italy. “Tuchel has chosen to play with another system. I won’t give up, I’ll be professional.

“I am not happy with the situation but I am professional – and I can’t give up now.”

Lukaku has now gone three games without a goal, with his record now standing at eight goals in 23 appearances this season.

The 28-year-old will get a chance to turn around his fortunes when Chelsea face Tottenham in the Premier League on Sunday.
