CHELSEA manager Thomas Tuchel brought on Romelu Lukaku after his disappointing performance at Man City.
The German criticized the Belgian for ‘losing the ball without pressure’ as the Blues lost 1-0.
Speaking after the game, the German was asked if Lukaku had enough service.
And he said, “Sometimes he needs to do service.
“He was inclusive, he lost many balls without any pressure and under very promising circumstances.
“He had a huge opportunity.
“He’s included, we want to serve him but he’s part of the team.”
Lukaku missed a big opportunity before Kevin De Bruyne got Man City’s decisive goal.
