Lukaku gives Chelsea injury scare as he undergoes scan on ‘minor issue’

Romelu Lukaku has handed Chelsea an untimely injury scare by admitting that he will be undergoing a scan on a “minor issue” before returning to Stamford Bridge from international duty.

The 28-year-old striker, who returned to west London in a £98 million ($136m) deal during the summer transfer window, has been away with Belgium in World Cup qualifying action.

He collected his 100th cap for his country against the Czech Republic on Sunday, with a caution in that contest meaning that he will be suspended for the clash with Belarus on Wednesday.

What has been said?

With his international break over, Lukaku has revealed that he will be returning to England early – but only after undergoing further medical tests.

He told HLN after marking a century of appearances for his country with his 67th goal for Belgium: “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.”

Will Lukaku be ready for Chelsea’s next game?

Lukaku appears to be suggesting the niggling fitness concern is nothing to worry about.

Chelsea have already seen him open his goal account for the club, with a debut effort recorded against London rivals Arsenal.

Lukaku is expected to inspire a Premier League title challenge for Thomas Tuchel’s side this season, and if fit he should start Chelsea’s return to domestic action on Saturday at home to Aston Villa.
