Romelu Lukaku finally scored his first Premier League goals in 2022. His two goals gave Chelsea only 1 point, as Wolverhampton equalized at the last minute deep in extra time: 2-2.
Todd Boehly, the new Chelsea owner, immediately came to see his new toy and saw that Romelu Lukaku was once again in the starting lineup. Boehly looked surprised when it took VAR a few minutes to rightly disallow Loftus-Cheek’s opening goal for offside.
After the break Boehly could cheer, twice in 3 minutes. Romelu Lukaku opened the score from the penalty spot and immediately scored for the 2-0 with a nice place ball.
The goals were clearly a relief for the Red Devils striker. His last goal in the Premier League dates back to late December.
Lukaku won’t really celebrate tonight, as his goals ultimately only resulted in a draw. Trincao made the connecting goal and Lukaku watched from the bench as Wolverhampton captain Coady headed the 2-2 in goal deep in the extra time: the 97th minute.
