Unbeaten run continues as strikers boyhood ambition is fulfilled
Romelu Lukaku said scoring at Stamford Bridge is something he has dreamed about since he was a child.
The Belgian scored for the first time at the stadium against Aston Villa, kissing the badge in front of the fans on what was his 15th appearance at Stamford Bridge overall.
Lukaku said “It’s my dream since I was eleven. I’ve worked hard for this moment.”
And he had to work hard to get them, only having had twenty five touches of the ball in the game – the lowest number of any outfield player in the game.
While he was restricted to just two chances, he scored from them both, and now has something of a fondness for playing against Villa with eight goals in his last six Premier League matches against them.
