Chelsea boss Tuchel speaks on Lukaku’s unselfish performance against Spurs

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel revealed that he was pleased with Romelu Lukaku’s performance against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

Though the Belgian striker didn’t get on the scoresheet as Tuchel’s side thrashed their guest 2-0, the manager commended him for his contribution to the victory.

“It was a very good team performance from him,” Tuchel said. “He was absolutely reliable and put in a huge effort.

“It’s a bit the story of our team. I have the feeling that we work really hard off the ball and sometimes are maybe not in full confidence or a calm state of mind when it comes to the opponents’ box.

“But the effort is something we define as a benchmark and a standard for us, so he gave everything in terms of work-rate.”
