Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku set for thigh scan ahead of Aston Villa

Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku set for thigh scan ahead of Aston Villa

Belgium see off Czech Republic

Belgium were in World Cup qualifying action on Sunday evening against the Czech Republic.

The Red Devils headed into the tie top of Group E and would extend their lead over 2nd place with a win on Sunday.

And that is exactly what Roberto Martinez and co. did, eventually coming away with a 3-0 win, which included Romelu Lukaku scoring his 67th goal in his 100th cap for Belgium.

Lukaku confirms thigh issue

Lukaku would also receive a yellow card on Sunday, meaning he would miss Belgium’s final outing of the break on Wednesday and instead go and re-join Chelsea ahead of their clash with Aston Villa this weekend:

Whilst Chelsea were likely quite pleased about this, they were probably less thrilled with Lukaku’s comments post-match against the Czech Republic.

When speaking about his plans for the coming days now he is suspended for Belgium, the striker stated he is going to have a scan on his thigh as he is struggling with a minor issue, then he will return to Chelsea:

“I’ll have a scan of my thigh first- I am struggling with a minor issue for a while. And then I will return to Chelsea.”
