Offside but that’s the sort of service Lukaku needs. Quick early passes through. Not this slow tempo safe passing nonsense. 

Exactly. Our mid and defence are so hopelessly guilty of those side ways useless passes. Literally the first time we play an early ball, we score.

Forwards too like Pulisic and Havertz don’t play it quickly enough and want to take too many touches when on the ball. Ziyech is the only one that takes the right amount of touches and takes risks on the ball. I actually wished everything went through Ziyech at times. He’s the ideal way our forwards should play. Risk taking and not slowing things down with unnecessary touches.

Tuchel needs to watch more Premier league football. He would soon realize that this isn't Premier leagur football. Premier league teams are very quick to reset into defensive positions. You simply cannot afford to be messing about with the ball for long periods horizontally. 

The only chances we created all game was a Rudiger attempt first half and a Kante chance through Sarr. It is embarrassing.

almost doesnt win anything. We finished last season without a number 9, winning games and the CL cup.

And we were crying out for a goal scorer. All through the last season. Even last season we got a striker or a no.9 in Werner who did not work out. Now Lukaku is not working out. 

At a certain point of time, you have to sit down and look at why literally any and all strikers who come here fail without a few exceptions. 

Look at the number of through balls we have played, if any. Our defence and mid are ponderous and simply not creative enough. Add to that the fact that our wingers are not traditional pace merchants who can beat their defenders, go to the by line and cross. Overall, all our attacking play is simply tiking taka-ing in front of a well set lines of defence. The service to our strikers needs to improve, not the other way around.
