Chelsea suffer ‘minor injury scare’ ahead of Aston Villa clash

Romelu Lukaku is a doubt for Chelsea ahead of their game against Aston Villa this weekend. 

The Belgian striker is set to return to London early after getting suspended for the national side’s next game. However, he has revealed a thigh scan to be taken care of before heading back. He told HLN:

“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.”

Romelu Lukaku picked up a booking last night when Belgium took on the Czech Republic. The striker playing in his 100th game for his nation and scored as well. 

Chelsea signed Lukaku from Inter Milan this summer for a club-record fee. The Belgian hit the ground running with a debut goal against Arsenal, but did not have a big role in the Liverpool draw.
