Where does the signing of Eto'o leave Lukaku?
Chelsea have signed Samuel Eto'o on a one year deal from Anzi Makhachkala. Where does this leave Romelu Lukaku? Will he now be fourth choice behind Eto'o, Torres & Ba?
Personally I'd have Lukaku 1st or 2nd choice. Mourinho was a fan of Drogba & Lukaku certainly has the attributes to be the 'next Drogba'. Judging by Lukaku's lack of appearences this season maybe Jose isn't a fan? So far Lukaku has only had a total of 151 minutes out of a possible 540.
Last season Lukaku was the 6th highest scorer in the league 2 goals ahead of Ba & Torres wasn't even in the top 20! Should Lukaku be ahead of those two in Chelsea's pecking order? Apparently he has said he is willing to fight for his place rather than go on loan but if he is overlooked all season should he look to leave?
