Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed that star striker Romelu Lukaku is back to training ahead of the FA Cup  semi-final game against Crystal Palace.

Lukaku had missed the Champions League quarter-final second leg clash against Real Madrid, and Tuchel is pleased to have the £97.5m signing back in training.

Tuchel is however uncertain of Lukaku’s involvement on Sunday, as he wants to observe the player for any reaction before the game at Wembley.

The only players ruled out of the game are Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ben Chilwell.

Tuchel said: “Romelu was back in training yesterday. Let’s see if he has any reaction or not.

“Except for BenChilwell and CallumHudson-Odoi everybody seems to be okay. We still have two more training sessions to go so fingers crossed it stays like this.”
