Chelsea and Manchester United will be preparing for their first meeting of the season on Sunday, when the Red Devils travel to Stamford Bridge to face the Blues. However, Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has recently trained with the squad in order to be in contention for the match, and he could overtake Ronaldo in the number of EPL goals by scoring this Sunday.
Last season, Lukaku and Ronaldo competed in Serie A, but Ronaldo showed the Belgian some class by finishing as the Serie A top goalscorer despite Inter Milan's Serie A victory. And their rivalry has continued in the Premier League since both moved to England during the last transfer window.
So far, they've both been fantastic for their teams. Ronaldo has four Premier League goals, while Lukaku has three. However, here are three reasons why Lukaku could dethrone Ronaldo this Sunday:
1. Lukaku Is Starving
The 28-year-old had recently returned from injury and is aware that Chelsea has been performing better without him. As a result, he'll be eager to make a difference for the Blues this Sunday.
The Belgian is someone who sets goals for himself, and he would have done so ahead of Sunday's crucial match, increasing his chances of scoring.
2. Retaliation Against Manchester United
The Red Devils were Lukaku's final English club before moving to Serie A to join Inter Milan. But now he's back at Chelsea, and he'll be doing everything he can to impress Manchester United this Sunday.
Because many pundits agree he failed to live up to expectations during his time at Old Trafford. As a result, Lukaku will be determined to put on a show against his former club.
3. Chelsea is in excellent defensive form.
Lukaku will also take advantage of Chelsea's excellent defensive form to put in a strong performance on Sunday, as Tuchel has created a Chelsea team that will be difficult to beat. Unlike Manchester United, the Blues have only lost one game this season.
Chelsea has also conceded the fewest goals (4) in the EPL this season, demonstrating their defensive strength. As a result, scoring against them will be difficult for Ronaldo.
So, will Lukaku be able to dethrone Ronaldo on Sunday?
