Former Manchester United star Rio Ferdinand has claimed Chelsea forward Romelu Lukaku will refind his form in front of goal. He said the Belgian striker is currently suffering from a 'rough period'.



Romelu Lukaku enjoyed an impressive start to his second spell at Chelsea after completing a £97.5 million move to the Blues from Inter Milan this summer. The 28-year-old scored four goals in his first four games for the club in all competitions. But he has failed to find the back of the net in his last six appearances for the club.

The Belgian has often been left isolated in attack due to Thomas Tuchel's defensive-minded tactics over the last couple of weeks. He has struggled to have an impact on Chelsea's games. Rio Ferdinand has, however, backed the former Inter Milan star to bounce back.

"Lukaku hasn't scored in six game but they are still winning games. There is no doubt in my mind he comes back and scores a hatful of goals. He's just having a bit of a rough period like all strikers go through," said Ferdinand on his Vibe with Five Youtube Channel.

Chelsea struggled in the absence of a top-quality striker last season. Thomas Tuchel was often forced to deploy the likes of Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic as makeshift No.9's. This was due to the poor form of Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham.

Most fans and pundits believed the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan was one of the deals of the summer. The Belgian had developed into one of the most lethal strikers in Europe during his time with Inter Milan.

He scored 64 goals in 95 games for the Serie A side and helped them lift their first Scudetto in 11 years last season.
