Chelsea star Lukaku vows to stop knee slide celebration after tearing socks in win over Aston Villa
CHELSEA ace Romelu Lukaku has vowed to stop celebrating with knee slides.
The Belgian's claim comes after he tore his socks during the Blues' 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.
Chelsea signed Lukaku for £97.5million from Inter Milan this summer and he has hit the ground running.
He has scored three Premier League goals in three games this season.
The 28-year-old bagged either side of Mateo Kovacic's goal against Villa to send Thomas Tuchel's men to second in the league.
But there was a slight down side to Lukaku's double.
And that was the damage he done to his socks.
Pictures of the striker after he opened the scoring with a neat right-footed finish showed large tears in his mud-stained long socks.

And the 28-year-old alluded to it on Twitter after the game.
He wrote: "No more sliding on my knees after yesterday’s celebration…"
The post got more than 88,000 likes and 1,507 re-tweets.
And even Didier Drogba got in on the act.
The former goal machine replied to a video of Lukaku's goal on Chelsea's official Instagram page and wrote: "Hello doctor David. Can you get him new knees?"
And he then joked: "@MarcosAlonso28 thanks for checking Lukaku's knees."
Lukaku is not the first Chelsea player to have trouble with the knee-slide.

Back in 2018, Blues legend Eden Hazard revealed scabs he was left with after performing the move himself.
Hazard said: "Look, look, the celebration – the sliding knee. I need to stop this.
"My knees – they are on fire! No more of this celebration."
