'Get in': Some Crystal Palace fans react to 'huge' team news ahead of Chelsea clash
Crystal Palace fans have taken to Twitter to celebrate after David Ornstein revealed that Romelu Lukaku will not play on Saturday.
What’s the story?
Well, Chelsea smashed their transfer record on Thursday to bring the 28-year-old back to Stamford Bridge in a deal worth €115m (£97.7m).
Lukaku left the Blues to join Everton on a permanent basis in 2014, and since then, he has risen to become one of Europe’s best.
The 98-cap Belgium international scored 30 goals last season as Inter Milan won the title, while he also scored four goals in five games at EURO 2020.
You can understand why the Crystal Palace fans on Twitter are delighted with his absence from Saturday’s clash.
Romelu Lukaku loves scoring against Crystal Palace
The prolific Belgian simply loves scoring against the Eagles, so Patrick Vieira will surely be delighted to hear he cannot play.
Lukaku has impressively scored eight goals in the 12 games he’s played against the south Londoners.
He has won five and drawn five of those 12 clashes, while only losing to Crystal Palace twice in his career.
Hopefully, the Eagles can spring a shock to the champions of Europe in west London on Saturday.
What a start to Vieira’s reign that would be.
For now, let’s see how the Crystal Palace fans on Twitter reacted to Lukaku’s absence…
