"I just want to improve".
It's no secret that the combative 29-year-old is a favourite of Mourinho, suited as he is to the Portuguese's pragmatic approach to football. "We have a history, we have an image and I'm really happy with that".

"When we went behind, we had to chase the game a bit".

Speaking to ChelseaTV, former defender Frank Sinclair is anxious for the Blues, who visit the Etihad next week needing a result, yesterday's loss at Old Trafford leaving them in fifth place, outside of the Champions League places.

After United's 0-0 draw with Sevilla in the Champions League last week, where Lukaku had 38 touches in the match and lost the ball 18 times, former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand added that he needs to produce more in the big games.
The two London sides face each other in April in what could be one of Chelsea's most important matches in recent history.
