Chelsea’s new signing, Romelu Lukaku, took to social media this Saturday to wish his new teammates good luck in their meeting with Crystal Palace.
Alonso in goal
Of course, Thomas Tuchel’s men are currently in action at Stamford Bridge.
After clinching two trophies in the space of three months courtesy of a penalty shoot-out that defeated Villarreal in the European Super Cup on Wednesday, the Blues have now turned their attention to Premier League matters.
A derby showdown with Crystal Palace marks Chelsea’s season opener, as the Pensioners expect an improvement to their final fourth place last time out.
And, as things stand, Tuchel’s men are well on their way to a positive outcome.
Marcos Alonso opened the afternoon scoring in style in the capital, doubling home a sumptuous free kick with his left foot in half an hour:

And since then, Chelsea have doubled their lead, with Christian Pulisic’s close-range shot leading the hosts into the break with a comfortable 2-goal lead.
Good luck guys!
Meanwhile, the dominance of the Blues up to this point in the proceedings against Palace is even more impressive, is the fact that it has come in the absence of several of Thomas Tuchel’s key artists.
Players like N’Golo Kante, Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz are on the bench this afternoon.
Not only that, but the only summer addition with a lot of money Romelu Lukaku, who this week sealed a £ 97 million return to West London, he was also deemed not ready to appear.
However, as described above, his omission against the Eagles evidently did not dampen ‘Big Rom’s spirits too much, as the Belgian international surely took to social media before kickoff to send a good luck message to his new player. Teammates:
Good luck guys !! Go @Chelsea football club 💙
