Will Lukaku start against Arsenal : Chelsea team news
Both Tuchel and Lukaku himself were very confident that he is ready and set to start against Arsenal this coming weekend. “We will prepare him to be ready and hopefully he can be on the pitch” said the German manager in the press conference. “I did a full pre-season, now I try to get my teammates better, at the end of the day I’m available for the manager if he wants me”, said the Belgian center forward as he was asked of his fitness and condition and whether he would start against Arsenal. It is likely he will start against the Gunners or at least he will surely certainly play a part in the game.
How Chelsea could lineup with Lukaku
It has been confirmed by Tuchel that Pulisic is out of contention for the game in the weekend after testing positive for Covid-19. However he still has an abundance of options to choose from, starting with Ziyech who is back in training, he will have to decide the front three as Werner and Havertz as well as the likes of Mount and Hudson Odoi can play anywhere in the front 3. Lukaku will most probably take the no.9 role up top if he is to start while the others try to play off him.
