It had been over three months since Romelu Lukaku last scored in a Premier League game, and the Chelsea centre-forward finally managed to find the net once again in the match against Aston Villa on Sunday.

Following this difficult period, not only because of the drought but also due to the difficulty in getting starts under Thomas Tuchel, this could of course be a turning point for the 28-year-old this season, as he’s working to prove himself following his return to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Right after Chelsea’s match against Aston Villa, ESPN Brasil reporter João Castelo-Branco managed to have a chat with Lukaku about this new chance he had with the Blues. The striker revealed he had a conversation with his manager about his role in the team, and listed the qualities he can offer in their strong campaign for the Premier League title.

“Me and the coach, we had a couple of conversations about whatever he wanted from me. Obviously I told him I’m multidimensional,” Lukaku told ESPN Brasil.

“It’s just about having a bit of clarity about how he wants to use me. And then whatever he wants from me, I can do whatever aspects he wants for the game. I can run in behind, I can press, I can hold the ball up.

“So I think throughout the years these are qualities I added to my game. So I just wanted an opportunity, I got it today, I’m happy that I helped the team, now I just want to move forward.”

Since signing for Chelsea in the summer, Lukaku has six goals and two assists in 17 appearances.
