"Perhaps we shine so brightly today because Romelu put forth so much effort earlier." He has already scored some crucial goals for us, putting us in a situation where young guys and other players can take over, step in, and demonstrate their abilities.

"We got off to a good start, and Romelu was our first signing of the season." The things he brings to the dressing room, the building, even when he's hurt, he's here every day, cheerful, driven, and he pushes everyone. He is a top striker and a top professional. He'll be fantastic, and he's actually rather essential right now.

"I'm glad we'll be able to go a long time without him, without (Mateo) Kovacic, without (Timo) Werner, and without (Christian) Pulisic." It demonstrates that we work as a team and rely on top talents in the same way that every team does, but they provide so much more.

"We miss all of our players when they're injured, and we'll miss Romelu a lot. However, we're capable of finding answers, and the squad is doing so well because Romelu is pushing, and he's here and part of the team. There are various points of view on the matter, and the discussion is far more complicated than it appears. It's time to compete, which is a positive thing."

The Blues haven't suffered in the slightest without Lukaku in recent weeks.

Chelsea thrashed Juventus 4-0 in the Champions League in midweek, and the Champions League champions have only lost once in the Premier League, against Manchester City in September.
