Lukaku happy with Blues battle

Published Add your comment

Chelsea new boy Romelu Lukaku made a positive first impression from the Blues' bench in Saturday's 3-1 victory over Norwich City, and nearly capped his cameo performance with a goal in the closing stages.

The 18-year-old striker was a second-half replacement for Fernando Torres, and within minutes received a rapturous reception from the Stamford Bridge faithful after giving them a taste of things to come from the powerhouse forward.

"Norwich played very well," admitted Lukaku. "They had very good wingers and a striker who caused problems but we managed to play well and we won, which is the most important thing.

"I nearly scored a goal but I was just happy to help the team to another win. If you're helpful to the team then the goals will come. It was a hard battle but we got the three points. Now we have to continue like that."


Chelsea were pegged back after Jose Bosingwa's opener, but goals from Frank Lampard and a debut strike from Juan Mata sent the Blues fans home happy, after creating an atmosphere that excited Lukaku.

"It was amazing," he added. "I want to thank them and I want to be helpful to the team and bring some titles back here to Stamford Bridge. I did my best today and hopefully I can continue like that and help the team.

"If I continue to improve my game I will change [the way I play] automatically, so I will continue what I am doing now and working hard.

"We are all young players and we always have to improve, that's the most important thing to becoming Chelsea players."
