Lukaku: Why it was emotional seeing Chalobah score on Chelsea debut

Romelu Lukaku admits he became emotional after Trevoh Chalobah scored in Chelsea's victory over Crystal Palace.

The new Chelsea signing was in the Stamford Bridge crowd as Chalobah struck in the 3-0 win.

Referring to Trevoh's brother and former Chelsea midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah, Lukaku told the club's website: "I was speaking with Nate after his brother scored.

"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."
