Chelsea have ruled out Romelu Lukaku from the squad for Sunday’s game against Liverpool after the club’s record signing expressed frustration over his role in the team.

The forward said he was “not happy with the situation” at Chelsea and indicated that he did not like the style of play of coach Thomas Tuchel.
Lukaku first joined Chelsea in 2011, but was on loan for two years before being sold to Everton in 2014. He returned to Chelsea last offseason in a deal worth nearly £ 100 million (about £ 140m at the time). million), after he scored 24 goals in Serie A to help Inter Milan win the Italian league title for the first time since 2010.
But Lukaku has had a frustrating first season back in London, where he was out for a month with injury and missed a few games in December after contracting the coronavirus.
