Chelsea’s new star striker Romelu Lukaku is showing positive signs ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Aston Villa. The Blues were worried that their star striker might not be fit after struggling with some thigh issues during Belgium’s 3-0 win over the Czech Republic on Sunday.
“I’ll have a scan of my thigh first. I have been struggling with a minor issue for a while. Then I will return to Chelsea,” he told the Evening Standard.
But following a training session at Cobham, Chelsea coaches are relieved to see that the Belgian international is moving freely.
The official Chelsea website wrote that “Romelu Lukaku, Mateo Kovacic, Andreas Christensen, Reece James, and Edouard Mendy were among those Blues back at our Surrey training base following midweek action for their national teams.”
“The sight of Lukaku on the grass was particularly positive after the striker admitted following Belgium’s victory over Czech Republic that he had been struggling with a minor thigh issue. Our number nine showed no signs of discomfort as he joined in the penultimate session before we host Aston Villa on Saturday evening.”
