Topic: Chelsea FC waiting on Romelu Lukaku scan after thigh injury on Belgium
Romelu Lukaku will have a scan on his thigh before returning early to Chelsea from Belgium duty.
The £97.5million striker was booked during his country’s 3-0 win against Czech Republic on Sunday night, ruling him out of their next World Cup qualifier against Belarus on Wednesday.
That means he will be free to head back to Cobham ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Aston Villa on Saturday.
While that is good news for Thomas Tuchel, the 28-year-old revealed a slight injury concern.
“I’ll have a scan of my thigh first,” he said. “I am struggling with a minor issue for a while. And then I will return to Chelsea.”
