November 2, 2021

CHELSEA are set to be handed a boost with Romelu Lukaku returning from injury in just ten-days.

The Belgium striker picked up a nasty ankle problem during the Blues' 4-0 win over Malmo at Stamford Bridge on 20 October.

He was facing up to a month on the sidelines, with fears it could be longer if he suffered a setback in his recovery.

But according to reports, he will be back for Chelsea after the international break next week.

His treatment has been going well at home, and he has also been going into the club's Cobham training ground.

The former Manchester United striker will miss their trip to Sweden to face Malmo tonight.

He has not travelled with the squad, who know a win will all-but seal their progress to the knockout stages.

Lukaku will also not be ready to face Burnley at home at the weekend.

It is understood Thomas Tuchel will not rush him back, and rather wait until he is fully ready.
