Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has given a strict warning, saying his team must be wary of EPL current top scorer Romelu Lukaku, ahead of Sunday’s crucial clash with Everton at Goodison park,
The Blues sold Lukaku to Everton for £28million in 2014 after series of a loan transfer, but the Stamford Bridge outfit are prepared to draw him back to Stamford Bridge for an astounding sum of £75million as a conceivable substitution for Diego Costa.
The Belgian international as of now has 24 league goals compared to Chelsea’s Costa 19, and may simply pulverise Chelsea title ambition by inspiring the Toffees to a win and permit Tottenham to move closer to Chelsea, on the off chance that Pochettino led side beat Arsenal at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
“I think he is a really good player and is scoring a lot of goals in this season, not only this season, we must pay great attention,” Conte told reporters on Friday.
“But it is the same, to find the right solution to stop them. We must find the right solution to stop Lukaku and all the other players.”
Conte went on to demand focus from his side as he considers Everton a very good team.
“It’s important to improve, to work on the situations we’re conceding the goals. We are working on it. Everton are a really good team, a strong team, with great players in their squad and a physical team,” said Conte.
“When we started this season, our first target was to play in the Champions League next season. It’s an important target for the club, for the fans, for the players. But, for sure, now we stay in a position to try also to win the league.”
