Lukaku Reveals What Thomas Tuchel Told Him That Inspired UCL Win Over Zenit.

Chelsea had tight a victory over Russian side Zenit during their UEFA champions league match on Tuesday.

Chelsea struggled to penetrate the Russian side, who put in an organised display at Stamford Bridge, but something changed after the break, and the Blues found their way through.

That was thanks to Lukaku’s winner in the 69th minute and, according to the Belgian striker, thanks to some key advice from head coach Thomas Tuchel.

Asked what Tuchel told his Chelsea side at half-time, Lukaku said;

“You know a little bit of movement in the middle of the pitch, have an extra man, then we tried to create chances maybe through balls or me holding the ball or with crosses and that’s where we eventually scored the goal from there.”

Chelsea’s next Champions League clash is a trip to Turin to face Juventus, one of the games that could go a long way in deciding who wins the group.
