Romelu Lukaku has handed Chelsea a boost upon his returning to training following his injury lay-off ahead of a potential meeting with former club, Manchester United.
It would be recalled that the 98m striker has been out since picking up a muscle injury against Malmo in the Champions League, with Thomas Tuchel at first believing he’d be out for only two matches.
On Friday Lukaku gave fans an update on his situation via social media, posting a tweet which read: “Running today let’s see how that goes”.
Running today let’s see how that goes 🔋…

Thomas Tuchel had already ruled him out for their weekend clash against Burnley but Lukaku’s will naturally have one eye on the fixture list and expects to be back in time to face his former employers, Manchester United.
United will visit Chelsea in the Premier League late November and if Lukaku if fully fit by then, he will be sure to lead the line against The Red Devils, managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
It would be recalled that Solskjaer, who is currently in a fight to save his job approved the sale of Lukaku to Inter Milan in 2019.
Chelsea face Burnley next and then Leicester in the league. They also have a Champions League clash with Juventus on November 23 before meeting Manchester United later in the month.
Chelsea currently leads the Premier League table with a three point margin over Liverpool at second place. Expecting Lukaku back will surely be a welcomed news for them.
