Chelsea’s Lukaku Dilemma: “The Daniel Sturridge Redux”

What has six legs, takes about 200 minutes to score a goal, and will be permanently changing their Stamford Bridge address this summer? Give up?

The Steel in Chelsea's Midfield: Nemanja Matic | Stats Profile

Chelsea must be regretting their decision of letting their Serbian midfielder go to Benfica back in 2011, because now Nemanja Matic is a crucial part of their midfield, breaking up play, reading the game and with the ability of picking a pass, the ex-Benfica player is the complete midfielder Jose Mourinho desperately needed.
