Romelu Lukaku returned to Chelsea’s Cobham training ground to continue his road to recovery from an ankle injury. He posted more update on social media as he continues his injury recovery heading into the international break.
The 28-year-old picked up an ankle injury in Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Malmo on October 20 and has been out since.
Lukaku and Timo Werner, who also sustained a hamstring problem in the same fixture, have been left out of Belgium and Germany’s squads for this month’s World Cup qualifiers, respectively, and can focus on their recovery.
While Thomas Tuchel himself refused to set a timetable for the pair’s return, at least Lukaku seems to have begun taking individual work.
Last Friday, he confirmed on social media that he did some running and later continued the progress on Sunday, posting an update of his recovery schedule with a four-word tweet on Sunday. He wrote on Twitter.
"Let's get this work,". The Blues forward then posted later on in the afternoon after he finished his session at Cobham, adding: "Finished for today… time to go home and watch the rest of these games."
Chelsea’s next three opponents are Leicester City, Juventus, and Manchester United, and they will need all the firepower they can get. This also includes Mateo Kovacic and Marcos Alonso, who are also struggling with injuries.
