Romelu Lukaku admits it was an 'amazing' feeling making his Chelsea debut and is hoping there will be many more games to come.

The 18-year-old was handed his Blues bow on Saturday in a 3-1 victory over Norwich.

He stepped off the bench with seven minutes remaining, replacing £50million man Fernando Torres.

Lukaku has made no secret of his affection for Chelsea, having supported the club before signing for them.

He admits he is living the dream and cannot wait to become a regular part of Andre Villas-Boas' plans.

"It was amazing," Lukaku told Sky Sports.


"It gives me a buzz to do more and I want to continue playing.

"For me as a youngster, I have come here to learn and to continue learning. I just want to show the club that whenever they need me I am ready."

Lukaku helped Chelsea over the line against the Canaries, with two late goals seeing them to three points.

The Belgium international insists he never doubted that the Blues would prevail, despite seeing Norwich hold their own until goalkeeper John Ruddy was dismissed for a foul on Ramires.

He added: "Norwich came back into it and they scored, but after that we showed that we can always fight back. We scored two goals and that's the most important thing.

"There was never a lot of fear because we are confident in our qualities. There are leaders in our team and that made the difference."
