Thomas Tuchel gives injury update on Romelu Lukaku after Manchester United game

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel gave an injury update on Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku following Chelsea’s 1-1 draw against Manchester United on Sunday.

Romelu replaced Werner in the 82nd minute, marking his return to action after spending a month on the sidelines following an injury in the 4-0 Champions League victory over Malmo.

“If Romelu’s fully fit he’s a starter for us but he’s not in the moment,” Thomas Tuchel said after the United draw.

“It was more than I actually wanted to use him but the game was so close to the opponent’s goal that we thought he could help with this, pushing, maybe one last touch.

“We were lacking a bit of a threat in the middle of the goal.”
