Thomas Tuchel has admitted Chelsea are frustrated after Romelu Lukaku revealed his dissatisfaction with his Stamford Bridge situation.
The “surprised” Chelsea boss admitted he would sit down with Belgium striker Lukaku to find a way forward but insisted he does not see any problem with the 98 million-pound (111-million-dollar) club-record summer signing.

Lukaku told Sky Italy, “I’m not happy with the situation” at Chelsea in an interview released on Thursday, but understood to have been conducted three weeks ago.

The 28-year-old has since told ESPN Brazil he had resolved any issues in a chat where he said Tuchel as “multidimensional”, but Chelsea’s manager accepted he had been left frustrated by the “noise”.
“We don’t like it, of course, because it brings noise that we don’t need and is not helpful,” said Tuchel.

“But on the other side, we don’t want to make more out of it than it is.
“You know very well how it is, and it’s straightforward to take lines out of context, to shorten lines to make headlines, then realize later it’s not so bad or what he meant.

“But let’s be honest, we don’t like it, because it’s noise we don’t need, we need a calm environment.”

Lukaku has hit two goals in his last two appearances, netting in the 1-1 draw with Brighton on Wednesday in his first Chelsea start for ten weeks.
The former Inter Milan hitman missed a sizeable chunk of the season through ankle trouble and then contracting Covid-19, with Tuchel staggering his return to action but the striker appearing itching for action.

Chelsea will host Liverpool on Sunday without hamstring injury victim Reece James and Ben Chilwell, whose season is over after knee ligament surgery.

Thiago Silva, Andreas Christensen and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are further defensive injury doubts, while Timo Werner has remained unwell after testing positive for Covid.
