Chelsea striker Lukaku: I got so emotional when Trevoh Chalobah scored

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has revealed he was emotional after Trevoh Chalobah's goal against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Lukaku, who re-joined Chelsea last week from Inter Milan, was close friends with Trevoh's brother, Watford midfielder Nathaniel, during his first spell at Stamford Bridge.

"I was speaking with Nate after his brother scored," said Lukaku.

"I got so emotional when his brother scored, man. It got to me. His older brother really embraced me when I came because we are one year apart.

"He really took his time to show me around London and stuff. When his brother scored, pffff, it was too much."
