Romelu Lukaku deletes Twitter and changes Facebook bio as Chelsea row escalates

Romelu Lukaku has deleted his Twitter account and has made a suspicious change to his Facebook page after being left out of Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Liverpool on Sunday.

The Belgian sent shockwaves around the club a few days ago after footage emerged of him declaring his unhappiness at Stamford Bridge during a bombshell interview on Italian TV.

Lukaku revealed he doesn't like the formation Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been using all season and insisted he would've stayed at Inter Milan had they offered him a new contract last summer.

In response, Tuchel decided to leave the striker at home ahead of what was a hugely significant tie with Liverpool, stressing that the "noise was too big" around the player to include him.

Amidst the furore, fans noticed that Lukaku's Twitter account no longer exists – with many claiming he deleted it some weeks ago, around the same time his infamous interview was recorded.

Though the 28-year-old's Facebook page has raised a few eyebrows.

Despite his profile picture showing him in Chelsea shirt, there is no mention of the club on Lukaku's profile, with his bio reading 'Inter Milan' instead.

It's possible that he simply hasn't updated his page since the summer, but it's not exactly a good look.

It's understood that Tuchel and Lukaku will sit down with each other for showdown talks, with the £97.5 million man's future temporarily up in the air.

Despite the tension, Tuchel insisted that there was still a way back for Lukaku.

"He is our player, there is always a way back, we will clear this behind closed doors and once we have made a decision and Romelu knows, you will maybe know also," he said after the Liverpool game.

"It is not to be discussed now."

Chelsea came from behind to earn a point in what was an absolutely thrilling encounter against title-rivals Liverpool yesterday.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah had given Jurgen Klopp's side a commanding lead in the first half before Mateo Kovacic and Christian Pulisic struck back for the Blues.

The draw means that Manchester City have extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to 11 points.
