Former Chelsea winger Pat Nevin believes Romelu Lukaku is full of confidence at the moment and has backed the Belgian to score against Leeds United.

 The Blues, who are currently third in the Premier League table, will take on relegation-threatened Leeds at Elland Road on Wednesday night (May 11).

Chelsea's club-record signing (£97.5 million) Lukaku hasn’t been able to live up to his mammoth price tag since his summer switch from Inter Milan. But he has recently proven that all hope’s not lost.

 The striker scored a brace in the 2-2 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday (7 May), taking the Blues closer to securing a top-four finish this season.

Courtesy of his encouraging performance against Wolves, Lukaku is expected to once again start versus Leeds. Nevin feels that the striker would be reinvigorated by the brace and could do more damage at Elland Road. Documenting his thoughts on Lukaku and the clash at Leeds, Nevin wrote for chelseafc.com :

“All this excitement doesn’t take away from the importance of Elland Road tomorrow night. I will not be surprised if Romelu Lukaku gets another shot at grabbing the headlines, as well as another goal or two. Many strikers exist on confidence as much as they do oxygen and those two goals at the Bridge will have had a spectacular effect on the big man.”


Nevin added that Lukaku would have one eye on snatching a starting berth in the FA Cup final against Liverpool this Saturday (May 14). The former Scotland international explained:

“He, like everyone else is playing for a starting berth at the weekend as well as that top-four spot and the big- name players love nothing more than turning up for the big games and making a big impact.”
