Chelsea offer injury update on Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku had scans earlier this week on a minor thigh problem which had been causing him some issues in recent weeks.

“I’ll have a scan of my thigh first,” he said. “I have been struggling with a minor issue for a while. Then I will return to Chelsea.”

The Blues have now confirmed Lukaku trained on Thursday without showing no signs of discomfort.

Chelsea’s official website wrote: “Romelu Lukaku, Mateo Kovacic, Andreas Christensen, Reece James and Edouard Mendy were among those Blues back at our Surrey training base following midweek action for their national teams.

“The sight of Lukaku on the grass was particularly positive after the striker admitted following Belgium’s victory over Czech Republic that he had been struggling with a minor thigh issue. Our number nine showed no signs of discomfort as he joined in the penultimate session before we host Aston Villa on Saturday evening.”
