Liverpool legend makes bold Romelu Lukaku claim following Chelsea goals against Aston Villa

Former Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness has claimed Romelu Lukaku has no weaknesses to his game following an impressive start to his second spell at Chelsea.

The Belgian forward returned to Stamford Bridge for a second time, and he has enjoyed an impressive start to his second stint with the club.

Lukaku continued his good momentum against Aston Villa netting his first ever career goal at Stamford Bridge with a ruthless finish into the corner of the net.

It proved the difference for the Blues at half-time, with a Mateo Kovacic goal after the break making things comfortable before Lukaku rounded off the win with a powerful late effort.

And Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness was full of praise for the Chelsea forward at half-time.

“He takes some stopping, he’s just very good at everything,” Souness said.

“Pretty poor defending [for the goal], you tell a defender to stay on your feet as a defender there. He was outwitted. A more experienced defender comes across and stands up. Lukaku is a proper handful.”

Before the game Souness claimed Manchester United made a mistake by letting him depart for Inter Milan back in 2019.

“He definitely is a key man, goals change games. If you have someone who can nick goals then all of a sudden you’re a different team. I don’t think Manchester United should’ve ever let him go and he seemed unhappy when he was there and he’s come back a happy man. ”

And the former Liverpool midfielder did not stop there.

Souness suggested the Belgian forward had no perceivable weaknesses and signalled him out as the difference maker for Chelsea.

“He hasn’t got a weakness, I’m not saying he’s brilliant at everything but he’s got no obvious weakness. If you’re playing against him and you’re a centre-back you’re not going to enjoy it.

“I don’t think anyone will enjoy playing against him, he’s got a bit of everything in his game and he’ll be the difference for them should he stay fit. “
