Romelu Lukaku has been dropped for Chelsea’s game against Liverpool, according to sources.

In an interview recorded several weeks ago but aired on Thursday, Belgium striker Lukaku said he was “not happy” with his bit-part role under Blues boss Thomas Tuchel earlier this season.

Tuchel said the comments had brought the club “noise we don’t need”.
