Following his goal against Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions league back in September 14th, Romelu Lukaku has not been able to find the back of the net for Chelsea ever since, one that is starting to develop concerns about him. For a player who arrived at Stamford Bridge as the most expensive signing in the club's history, scoring goals is all that is required of him to justify his huge price tag. However, its been six games now and the Belgian is still firing blank, but can he end his goal drought when the Blues take on Malmo in the Champions league this mid-week?. Moreso, considering the fact that his last Chelsea goal came in the Champions league at Stamford Bridge, it won't be out of place for him to rediscover his scoring boots in the same venue and competition.
Not that anyone is doubting Lukaku's abilities, but a striker his quality has gone long enough without a goal. The match between Chelsea and Malmo will be the first ever meeting between the two sides in the Champions league and the third in European competitions having previously met twice in the Europa league back in 2019. But while Chelsea will be expected to come away with the result, their most expensive player will be required to hit the ground running once more.
Do you think Romelu Lukaku can end his goal drought this mid-week?
