How Tuchel Can Help Improve Lukaku's Scoring Form As Striker Resumes Training {Opinion}


Romelu Lukaku is finally fit and ready to return to Chelsea's first squad ahead of the next Premier League encounter against Leicester City after three weeks on the sidelines. Romelu Lukaku was photographed training alone at Cobham today, indicating that he has fully healed from his injury and is ready to play for Chelsea in a competitive encounter.

In Chelsea's 4-0 Champions League triumph over Malmo, Romelu Lukaku suffered a horrific injury that kept him out for nearly three weeks. Prior to his injury against Malmo, though, Romelu Lukaku was struggling to score goals for Chelsea, having gone six games without scoring.

Romelu Lukaku's last goal for Chelsea came against Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League opener. He scored a late winner to give Chelsea all three points, but he hasn't scored in seven games in a row since then.

How Thomas Tuchel can resurrect Lukaku's scoring career:

The recent dismal form of Romelu Lukaku in front of goal is cause for concern, and supporters should not expect things to improve now that he has back from injury. Thomas Tuchel will have to change his system to accommodate two offensive midfielders if he wants Romelu Lukaku to score again.

It's past time for Thomas Tuchel to abandon the 3-4-3 formation in favor of a more offensive 4-2-3-1 configuration with a playmaker and two wingers. The 4-2-3-1 formation is ideal for bringing out the best in Romelu Lukaku, who will now be free to roam and benefit from a free-flowing attacking system.

Instead of putting Mason Mount on the flanks, Thomas Tuchel should move him to the number 10 position, where he can play alongside Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, and Christian Pulisic in the attacking third.

The ultra-aggressive line-up of Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic, and Mason Mount appears appealing, and Thomas Tuchel should give it a go in the league game this weekend. Next weekend, Leicester City will meet Chelsea at the King Power Stadium, providing Thomas Tuchel with the ideal opportunity to test out his new formation.
