Unfortunately for the Blues, his finishing still requires improvement, as was demonstrated when Lukaku perfectly caressed a pass into the German’s path, only for him to blaze the ball over from a good position.
However, his impressive brace for Germany against Moldova in the international break were the finishes of a natural born goals corer.
Of course, there were times when Lukaku and Werner were not quite on the same page, as a passage of play in the first half highlighted.
Werner had an excellent opportunity to help break the striker’s goal duck by crossing into his path at the back post, but he did not see him in time.
The partnership needs time, as does Werner whose Leipzig form seems to be getting closer and closer to being found. If their understanding corresponds with the discovery of Werner’s regular shooting boots, then Chelsea really will be the team to beat.
