“It must be frustrating for him”: Lukaku isn’t put in the right mood by Tuchel, evidence in statistics

This Tuesday, against Brighton, Romelu Lukaku celebrates his 10th Premier League debut since returning to Chelsea. The result was disappointing and the individual rating was 5/10 in most UK media. At half-mast since his return to London, his figures confirm that the devil is not (yet?) complete with the blues. But let’s take the analysis a little further by comparing Inter’s Lukaku and Chelsea.

The figures below, provided by Wyscout, pertain only to Premier League 2021-2022 matches (10 starts and 5 appearances) and Serie A 2020-2021 (32 starts, 4 appearances). They highlight the very different roles of Lukaku who seems frustrated under Tuchel and who has set foot under Conte.

Big Rome is far less dangerous at Chelsea than Inter. Satan is currently at 0.34 “expected target” per 90 minutes blues, while it was 0.68 (doubled) with the total nerzzuri, This translates into numbers proportionally as he scores every 220 minutes with Chelsea while he scored a goal every 128 minutes with Inter. If we add the assist in the calculations, Lukaku is decisive every 183 minutes across the channel, compared to every 93 minutes he was with the Lombards.

Under Tuchel, Deville touched only 3.76 balls in the opposition zone in 90 minutes, while under Conte he scored 5.69. Another statistic that explains their downfall.
