According to The Athletic, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has dropped Romelu Lukaku from Chelsea’s squad to face Liverpool later today.

Tuchel is unhappy Lukaku had an unauthorised interview with Sky Italia in which the Belgium striker said he was unhappy with his role at Chelsea and will like to return to Inter Milan.

Lukaku has scored in his last two appearances for Chelsea and his absence will surely come as a big blow to the Chelsea team.

Chelsea are 11 points behind leaders Manchester City and need to beat Liverpool at home on Sunday to realistically have a chance of competing for the title.
