This perfectly rounded off the day for Lukaku who helped Chelsea to be joint top of the Premier League with title rivals Manchester United. 

As Lukaku went to celebrate with the Chelsea faithful, he tried to knee slide in front of the fans and hilariously fell over as his knees were caught in the turf. 

The Chelsea players quickly went over to the Belgian international to celebrate and check that he hadn’t injured himself in the process.

The day after the game, Lukaku tweeted: ”No more sliding on my knees after yesterday’s celebration…” 

In the second half, the Belgian international capped off an excellent performance with a stunning second goal in the closing minutes of the game as he blasted the ball into the top corner from the edge of the penalty area.

Lukaku said After the game, : ”It was my dream since I was 11 to score here. I’ve worked hard for this moment.” 

”I was up and down at the start of my career but I’ve found a certain consistency in the last three years. In Italy, I was playing in a league where I maybe had one or two chances in a game so I had to take them.”
