In Chelsea’s match day programme before playing Norwich, Lukaku said: “I didn’t have my parents filming my games and stuff, but I could visualise them.

“After the game, I could basically detail how it happened.

“”If my parents hadn’t been there to watch, I would tell my dad what happened, literally from the first to the last minute, in great detail.

“Sometimes if scouts had been at the game, they would call my dad and he would say to them, ‘This is what Rom said happened in the game’.

“And they would be like, ‘Yeah, that’s really what happened. 

“Sometimes, if I shoot and miss, I know perfectly where I made the mistake in my steps, my shooting, my movement, or whatever the case may be.

“I just know because it’s like repetition, repetition, repetition – at some point, it just becomes a natural thing, so that, football-wise, I can remember most things that happen in a game.”

After Chelsea’s 4-0 Champions League win at home to Malmo, it emerged Lukaku spoke eight languages.

But the modest forward, who came back to Stamford Bridge for a club-record £97.5million fee, admitted he does not speak German fluently.

He said: “German, no. I understand a little bit, though.

“Also, with Dutch and Flemish… it’s like England and Scotland. The accent is just different. We all speak Dutch, but it’s just the accent is different.” 

Lukaku, 28, was forced off against Malmo after winning Chelsea a penalty on the 20 minute mark.

He is now facing up to a month on the sidelines, following the twisted ankle.
