Chelsea won Astonvilla yesterday during the first round of Carabao cup competition.The game ended 1-1 after which the blues won on penalties.
Kepa Arrizabalaga once again showed his abilities during the penalty shoot-out, he saved Nakamba’s penalty after Ashley young’s strike hit the bar.
Jorginho did not play against Astonvilla yesterday, the blues will play against Mancity on Saturday and he will obviously start the game.
Jorginho is one of Chelsea’s best midfielders currently, he is an important player for Thomas Tuchel’s team.
Jorginho would have played a penalty if he featured yesterday, most Chelsea players scored except from Ben Chilwell.
Romelu Lukaku really showed the fans his penalty technique, his penalty was the best. He decieved the goal keeper with his pace and the placed the ball to a perfect position.
When Lukaku got signed newly, some fans debated if Lukaku should be the penalty taker but Jorginho’s excellent penalty record keeps limiting Lukaku’s chances.
Recently, goalkeepers seem to have mastered Jorginho’s style of penalty. He missed the last penalty he played for Italy against Switzerland, Yan Sommer did not fall for his trick .
The question is, Has Romelu Lukaku passed the test of becoming Chelsea’s first choice penalty taker?
I think the answer is yes, Lukaku played over 9 penalties at Inter Milan last season and did not miss anyone. The penalty technique he showed yesterday can make him to become the team’s first choice penalty taker.
Romelu Lukaku needs more goals because he is competing for the Golden boot award, this is the main reason why Tuchel should consider him.
Romelu Lukaku has a different way of taking penalty, he does not play to entertain the fans instead he plays to score.Yesterday, made a slow run which decieved Steer(Astonvilla goalkeeper) before playing the ball into the net.
