One of the bright shining stars so far this season has been the emergence of Romelu Lukaku as a powerful force in his position as striker for West Bromwich Albion. Last season, Lukaku seemed to be in the shadow of Didier Drogba too much, but at the Hawthorns, Lukaku has been given more playing time as well as a more central role to show his incredible skills.
Now West Brom will need to fight to extend Lukaku’s loan deal from Chelsea. The Blues could need an extra striker on hand in case Fernando Torres is injured or needs to be replaced. Should Chelsea let Lukaku continue to play at West Brom, or should they bring him back to Stamford Bridge? Have your say in the comments below.
PS — Happy Guy Fawkes Day!
