If Spurs fans weren’t already upset following Davies’ dreadful own goal, they had Lukaku shushing them when the ball went in.

And if Antonio Conte’s team is to overcome a 2-0 deficit in the second leg of the semi-final next week, they must do it all at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

After being left out of Thomas Tuchel’s team for the weekend’s blockbuster against Liverpool, the 28-year-old attacker was re-instated.

Lukaku was involved in Chelsea’s second goal, winning a free-kick that was deflected into his own net by Davies.

Lukaku spent some time saluting the home supporters and giving a thumbs up to the Matthew Harding Stand after the game ended.

Tuchel stated Lukaku is relaxed after the game, despite the fact that his recent interview, for which he indicated his wish to return to Inter, enraged fans.

“Romelu rested himself for the last game,” he joked to Sky Sports.

Tuchel continued by saying that the Belgian is: “Absolutely happy. I’m confident he’s not harmed because I see him on a daily basis and he appeared to be in good spirits even recently.” He was unconcerned with the incident and had mentally moved on.
