When Romelu Lukaku is expected to return to training for Chelsea

When Romelu Lukaku is expected to return to training for Chelsea

An update on when Romelu Lukaku is expected to return to the fold with Chelsea has been provided on Friday.

Lukaku’s Chelsea stint

Romelu Lukaku would make his return to Chelsea over the summer, signing from Inter Milan.

The Belgian enjoyed a solid debut, netting against an Arsenal side whose defence, admittedly, was all over the place at the time.

Lukaku then failed to find the net versus Liverpool, but managed a brace against Aston Villa in his ensuing league outing, though it is worth noting that no.1 shot-stopper Emiliano Martinez was not in between the sticks for Dean Smith’s team.

Elsewhere, the hitman notched versus Zenit St. Petersburg in the Champions League, but blanked in Chelsea’s loss to Juventus, as well as in his last four Premier League outings.

When Romelu Lukaku is expected to return

Such struggles, in turn, were followed by Lukaku picking up an injury which has since seen him miss two Premier League games, a Champions League tie and a League Cup fixture.

The Blues have, in truth, not exactly struggled to find the net without their record signing, notching 12 goals across those four games.

But Thomas Tuchel is still no doubt keen to have the Belgian back as soon as possible. And now, as mentioned above, an insight into when Lukaku will return has been provided.

The Chelsea striker took to Twitter on Friday to post the following update:

‘Running today let’s see how that goes’

This message was subsequently quote tweeted by The Athletic’s Simon Johnson, who stated that Lukaku is on course to return after the international break:
