CHELSEA boss Thomas Tuchel laid into Romelu Lukaku after the striker's disappointing performance at Man City.
The German blasted the Belgian for 'losing the ball without pressure' as the Blues lost 1-0.
Speaking after the game, the German was asked whether Lukaku had enough service.
And he said: "Sometimes he needs to do the service.
"He's included, he had many ball losses without any pressure and in very promising circumstances.
"He had a huge chance.
"He is included, we want to serve him but he is part of the team."
Lukaku missed a huge chance before Kevin De Bruyne got City's winner.

He was played through on goal, opened his body to shoot with his left but he put it at a nice height for Ederson who batted it away.
But Tuchel also pointed the finger at his other attackers.
He said: "We had eight or nine offensive transitions [in the first-half] and zero touches in the box.
"That was a big problem today, offensive-wise, the performance of the front players.
"That was down to a lack of precision, timing, and composure.
"At a level like this we lost too many balls too easily."
It was Lukaku's first Premier League start since his bombshell interview that caused fury at Chelsea and saw him dropped from the side before he aplogised.
