While Everton striker Romelu Lukaku is taking about his improved form in front of goal for Everton, which saw him bag a brace in the Toffees 3-3 draw against Liverpool last week, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has told him to hold his tongue.
Mourinho has reminded Lukaku that he belongs to Chelsea and is only on-loam at Everton, and while he scores goals against Chelsea’s direct opposition, he is happy
“Romelu likes to speak. He's a young boy. But the only thing that he didn't say is why he went to Everton on loan,” said Mourinho.
“My last contact with him was to tell him exactly that. 'Why do you never say why you are not here?'
“It's something that he should say, because he likes to speak, the reason why he is not with Chelsea and he is in Everton.”
Mourinho believes there are a number of positives to Lukaku playing at Everton though.
“It's good for his evolution,” added Mourinho.
“It's good for Chelsea, because he belongs to us for a long time and I'm happy with that.
“I'm happy that he's scoring goals against our direct rivals and he doesn't score against us because he can't.
“It's phenomenal when you have a player even when he's not playing for you he's scoring against your opponent. That's very, very good.”
Looking ahead to the transfer window in January, Mourinho said he is unlikely to add to his squad.
“Most probably we are going to end with this group,” said Mourinho.
“Few players are available who would improve the squad and are available for the Champions League.”
