The Blues were reported likely to face Aston Villa without Romelu Lukaku
Chelsea could see a sudden change in report with Romelu Lukaku likely to get into action against Aston Villa.
The Belgian had complained of feeling pains after his game for Belgium and that led to speculations of him missing out Aston Villa game.
But following latest reports, it’s more likely he would now feature for the West Londoners when they lock horns with Aston Villa tomorrow.
Romelu Lukaku showed positive fitness signs ahead of Chelsea’s clash against Aston Villa on Saturday evening after showing ‘no signs of discomfort’ during training at Cobham on Thursday.
In the official Chelsea website’s segment of their gallery of Thursday’s training, on Lukaku’s inclusion they wrote: “Romelu Lukaku, Mateo Kovacic, Andreas Christensen, Reece James and Edouard Mendy were among those Blues back at our Surrey training base following midweek action for their national teams.
“The sight of Lukaku on the grass was particularly positive after the striker admitted following Belgium’s victory over Czech Republic that he had been struggling with a minor thigh issue. Our number nine showed no signs of discomfort as he joined in the penultimate session before we host Aston Villa on Saturday evening.
“The returning faces also gave new loan signing Saul Niguez the chance to meet some of his new team-mates for the first time following his deadline day switch from Atletico Madrid.”
