Chelsea defender, Marcos Alonso, believes Romelu Lukaku is on track for the Golden Boot.
The Belgian marked his second home debut for the Blues with two stunning strikes at the weekend as Chelsea defeated Aston Villa 3-0 at Stamford Bridge, making it three goals in three games for the summer signing from Inter Milan.
Alonso told the club’s website: “He has shown his abilities. He is so strong and he scores goals.
“Of course he is one of the best in his position and it’s great to have him with us. It will be a tough fight [for the Golden Boot] but of course, he’s got a chance.
“If the whole team will deliver for him and be together and put in performances like this, he’s just going to have to score the goals and we will see at the end of the season.
“You see all the good teams in the last few teams who have won the league, they’ve had someone in the top scorers’ list. That’s what we will have with Lukaku this season, I’m sure. Hopefully, he will help us achieve bigger things and score as many goals as he can.”
