His teammates failed him – Poyet names ‘excellent’ Chelsea star after 1-1 draw with Brighton

Chelsea legend, Gus Poyet has singled out ‘excellent’ Romelu Lukaku for praise after Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Brighton at Stamford Bridge, saying that his teammates failed him. Lukaku made his first league start in two months and fired Thomas Tuchel’s side in front in the 28th minute with a fine header. But his teammates, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Mason Mount wasted clear opportunities created by the Belgium international to put the match to bed. The Blues paid for their wastefulness when Danny Welbeck scored an injury-time equaliser to earn Brighton a well-deserved point. But former Chelsea star, Poyet hailed Lukaku’s performance. Poyet told Amazon Prime, “It’s great to see a striker of that quality. “He was winning the ball in the air, the way he linked the play, his firs...
