The Blues were followed by a full quota of 2,800 fans in London yesterday, and Lukaku said that it is good when the support is as vocal as the Blues were.
“They were brilliant,” declared the Belgian.
“They were just wonderful today and supported us through every moment. It’s good when you have support like that.”
Lukaku also revealed that he enjoyed the week-long training trip to Qatar with the team last week, saying that it had helped galvanise team spirit.
“We had a very good week in Qatar and it was important to work on the fundamentals that we created last year and refresh them. Now it’s a good start for the rest of the season,” he added.
“Like I say, the week helped us a lot because we spent so much time together and talked about everything. The group is now closer than ever.
“We are a team with great quality and we showed that today. It was a difficult game and we could have scored more but to win is always a great feeling.”
