Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku will miss Saturday’s Premier League game against Leicester City as he continues his injury recovery.

Asked if the striker will be fit to face Juventus in the Champions League in midweek, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel said: “It’s pure speculation and will not help. All I can say is that at the moment we will try hard that he can join team training on Sunday.

“He’s putting a lot of pressure on himself. We will not rush things, we will take things seriously as always, we will have lots of talks with the doctors and the physios before we make any decisions.

“If there is something to be decided it’s good, and if so, it will be decided on Monday.”
