Blow for Chelsea as top striker set to miss villa clash

Lukaku in doubt for Aston Villa clash, set to go scan on ‘minor issue’

Romelu Lukaku will be undergoing medical tests before heading back to Stamford Bridge later this week.

The striker got a yellow card in Belgium’s game last night and will miss their last game before the break ends. However, he has a minor fitness issue that needs to be addressed before he returns to Chelsea.

The striker seems to be saying that he should be fine to play for Chelsea, but we will have to wait and see if he can be started against Aston Villa.
