Chelsea supporters on social media got a good chuckle out of Antonio Rudiger and Romelu Lukaku’s interaction after the Arsenal game, writes the ChelseaChronicle.
One eagle-eyed watcher captured the comedic scene between the pair, where Rudiger decided to slap Lukaku’s head with a fair amount of force, seemingly as a way of congratulations.
This wouldn’t have been so humorous had a spray of sweat not left the Belgian’s head following his teammate’s interesting sign of affection.
Blues fans feel to their knees in laughter at the video and yet another random Rudiger moment.
Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:

Although it was certainly an unusual way to congratulate someone, Rudiger’s response was definitely justified.
Lukaku had a day to remember for all the right reasons against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.
