Chelsea have just won 2-0 against Tottenham Hotspur but their main striker, Romelu Lukaku has not been able to find his form.
Why did Lukaku play so bad at Chelsea?
Remember, right at the beginning of 2022, Romelu Lukaku made the foggy football village make waves by declaring that he was unhappy at Chelsea.
Specifically, he thinks that the scheme that coach Thomas Tuchel applied at The Blues is not suitable for him. Before that, Lukaku once shone at Inter Milan with coach Antonio Conte’s 3-5-2 strategy, where he received the support of his teammate in attack, Lautaro Martinez.
Talking about the Argentine striker, Lukaku once expressed: ” I could die on the pitch for him “. Meanwhile, at Chelsea, coach Thomas Tuchel prefers to apply a 3-4-2-1 formation, with the Belgian striker playing the highest position in the attack. In this system, Lukaku proved to be quite lonely in getting into the box and that seems to be the reason why he was not happy.
Talking about his playing style, the former Inter Milan star once said: ” People see me as big, so they think I’m a target striker (Target Man) or just stay stuck in the penalty area waiting for an opportunity. score (Poacher).
Honestly, I hate that way of playing. My strength makes me more dangerous when facing defenders directly because I can make them make mistakes .”
In addition, another problem with the Belgian striker is that he cannot find a partner that really works with him in attack. From the beginning of the season until now, coach Thomas Tuchel has rotated quite a lot of personnel for two support positions behind the former Inter Milan striker, with options including Mason Mount, Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic or even Callum Hudson-Odoi.
As a result of this, Lukaku didn’t have much time to adapt and find the perfect partnership with any of the names on the list above. Without effective coordination, Lukaku has also become more and more harmless in attack and although recently, coach Thomas Tuchel has actively switched to 4-2-2-2 or 4-1-4. -1 but, for the Belgian striker to find his best form at Chelsea, it still seems to be a difficult problem to solve for the German strategist.
David Ornstein clarifies the possibility of Arteta signing Wilshere
Arsenal’s midfield is currently very thin. As early as January, Mikel Arteta confirmed Arsenal would try to bring in rookies in this area. That’s why Gunners fans believe that Jack Wilshere, who is training at London Colney, will have a chance to play for his old team.
However, according to journalist David Ornstein, who specializes in reporting on Arsenal, the Gunners have no plans to recruit Wilshere. The deadline to register players for the second leg will fall next Monday and if now Wilshere has boarded a plane with Arsenal to Dubai for the tour. As such, this means it will be difficult for him to sign for another club for the rest of January.
A few days ago, Wilshere posted three training photos at London Colney with an hourglass logo. The move received more than 500 comments within hours of posting. However, Wilshere and Arsenal failed to reach the necessary agreements for the Gunners to have their first signing in January.
Currently, Arsenal are targeting Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo. The player’s agent visited the Gunners training ground last week, but negotiations between the two sides have not progressed. It comes from the fact that Juventus do not want to lose people in the context that they cannot find an alternative.
