Lukaku will be fine, other strikers like Harry Kane and Alexandre Lacazette are also having a rough time this season but it appears that people are picking on Lukaku. Recording just a few touches made it seem like his teammates are also out to get him. Only 7 touches in 90 minutes appear to be very poor performance and it may not be his fault at all.
Chelsea needs Lukaku’s service, they need him to start scoring a lot and get more touches. Also, he’ll need more touches if they plan to win the Premier League cup this season.
