Fans are beginning to think Chelsea are ‘cursed’ as two of their former strikers scored in the Europa League on Thursday night.
The Blues have endured a sub-par start to the season under new boss Mauricio Pochettino as they sit 14th in the Premier League.
Chelsea have scored just seven goals in their opening six games of the campaign and have failed to net in their previous two.
Scoring woes at Stamford Bridge are nothing new with Diego Costa, who left in 2017, their most recent prolific striker.
The former has scored just 15 goals since he re-signed in 2021, whereas the latter netted just three times in his single season.
Both players departed the club in the summer but have not been shy in front of goal for their new teams.
Lukaku scored the winner for Roma, for whom he is playing on loan this season, in their 2-1 victory over Sheriff Tiraspol.
Aubameyang also found the target twice for Marseille on Thursday night in their 3-3 draw with Ajax, and fans think Chelsea could be jinxed.
Taking to X, one said: “If only we had a striker at Chelsea who can score goals.”
“Even Aubameyang is banging goals, Chelsea is the problem!” added another.
A third said: “Chelsea is cursed even Aubameyang just scored a goal.”
Meanwhile, former loanee Joao Felix equalled his goal contributions tally he made during his spell at Stamford Bridge in just 130 minutes at Barcelona earlier this week.
Chelsea signed both Nicolas Jackson and Christopher Nkunku in the summer with a view to bringing an end to their scoring shortcomings.
However, Jackson has scored just one goal so far this season and the latter is yet to make a competitive appearance due to injury.
