"It is difficult to judge" - Thomas Tuchel on whether 'overplayed' Chelsea star should be rested or not

 

Romelu Lukaku was hailed as the missing piece of the Chelsea puzzle when he returned to Stamford Bridge this summer. After two excellent seasons with Inter Milan, the Belgian returned to the Premier League in a £97.5 million trade.



Lukaku made an immediate impact in his second stay with the Blues, scoring four goals in his first four outings. However, the 28-year-hot old's start has faded and he has failed to score in his previous six outings. In recent games, Chelsea's strength has been in their defense rather than their attack, as it was the previous season.

Given his astronomical price tag, Lukaku's mini-drought is disheartening, and Tuchel has blamed his goal-shy form on the club's hectic match schedule. After appearing in the Nations League semi-final against France, Lukaku was forced to retire from the Belgium squad owing to muscle exhaustion.

"We are in the process of adapting to each other and in my opinion, I feel Romelu is being overplayed," said Tuchel ahead of Chelsea's Champions League clash with Malmo on Wednesday. "I think he played too many competitions over the summer, with his national team and now the Nations League."
