Chelsea injury boost as Romelu Lukaku returns to training ahead of crunch clashes against Juventus and Man Utd

ROMELU LUKAKU has provided Chelsea with a huge fitness boost as he returned to training on Monday after injury.

The £97.5million striker has been out of action since he hurt his ankle last month against Malmo in the Champions League.

Now he is expected to return to action shortly after continuing his recovery at Chelsea’s Cobham HQ – and could even feature against Leicester on Saturday.

And if not fit for the Foxes, he could be back in action for next week’s Champions League clash with Juventus, or the crunch showdown with Manchester United.

Lukaku, 28, has regularly been providing his social media followers with updates regarding his progress on the road to recovery.

The Blues star revealed earlier that he was in training as the ex-Red Devils and Everton star then posted two snaps of himself in the session along with a battery emoji on his social media.

Three days ago he also tweeted: “Being on the sideline these last weeks… I realise how much fun it is to just train and compete against other teams!”

Lukaku’s injury forced him out of the Premier League draw against Burnley.


It also meant he missed Belgium’s 3-1 World Cup qualifying win over Estonia and will miss Tuesday’s clash in Wales.

Lukaku made a stunning start to life back at Stamford Bridge following his return from Inter Milan in the summer. 

He scored four goals in his first four outings before enduring a four-match barren streak prior to his injury against Malmo.
