The Belgian has been out with an ankle injury, being forced off as Chelsea hosted Malmo last month. Lukaku has taken to Twitter to provide an injury update as he works on his recover.

He wrote"Being on the sideline these last weeks... I realise how much fun it is to just train and compete against other team! Soon though."

Chelsea fans fans will be hopeful that he can make his return after the international break ‘soon’.

Thomas Tuchel previously outlined the plans for Lukaku during the November international break. Speaking about Lukaku and Werner, Tuchel targetted a November return for his players.

He said: “I am not a friend of deadlines and not putting pressure. Both of them have a new target and that target is after the national break. This is what they aim for, what we aim for."
