Implications Of Rumelu Lukaku's Current Goal Drought At Chelsea

Rumelu Lukaku's current form at Chelsea is now a call for concern to Chelsea fans, who had believed that he would come and become the goal poser that Chelsea needs. Lukaku was bought from Inter Milan last transfer window to help Timo Werner, who was not prolific enough in the previous season.

Rumelu Lukaku started very well for Chelsea as he scored on his second debut for Chelsea. He went on to score three more goals in all competitions. But at the moment, he seems to be doing badly as he is experiencing a goal drought at Chelsea. Lukaku's fans and Chelsea's fans should be aware of the implications of Lukaku's goal drought.

1. Chelsea's title challenge may go down the drain; Lukaku is the only trusted goalscorer for Chelsea at the moment and if he fails to live up to expectations, Chelsea will be affected. In the recent past, Chelsea has been struggling to win matches because their star player has not found his rhythm in front of goal.

2. The Belgian international may end up being relegated to the bench. He has been a regular starter for Thomas Tuchel since he moved to Stamford Bridge from Inter Milan. But when a player does not deliver as expected, it is the duty of the manager to relegate him to the bench and play someone else who is doing better. If Lukaku does not start in Chelsea's next match, no one should be surprised.

3. His market value will possibly drop because of drop in form; he was bought as the club's record signing and if he is not scoring goals, his market value will drop appreciably.

This is a call for concern to Chelsea's management. Right now, he is practically not the best player at Chelsea. In the game against Brentford on Saturday, he was substituted while Timo Werner was on. This shows that Thomas Tuchel is beginning to lose faith in the attacker. He should score or see himself on the bench.
