Arsenal hero, Paul Merson, has agreed with former Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte over his comments on Romelu Lukaku and Thomas Tuchel.
Conte, who managed Lukaku during their time at Inter Milan, had criticized the way Chelsea coach Tuchel uses the striker in the Blues’ onrush so far this flavor.
The Italian gaffer had said that Chelsea, under Tuchel, are “yet to figure out” Lukaku after his homecoming to the Premier League giants from Inter in the summertime.
Reacting, Merson, in his column for the Daily Star, said, “Antonio Conte is right in relation to Chelsea – they are not getting the best out of Romelu Lukaku.
“Conte was saying this week that his old guild are still trying to figure things out with Lukaku and I think he’s right.
“I think the Chelsea players are looking for Lukaku too much. Sometimes they are ignoring a superior ball when the one to Lukaku is just not on.
“Lukaku is too focused on feeling defenders and backing in as good. He needs to acquire a flake cuter around the box with his flick-ons and lay-offs.
“I think they’ll acquire it right. They just demand to regain superior patterns of play.”
