Romelu Lukaku backed to Chelsea’s training camp

The Belgium player got his ankle injury after the 4-0 win of the club against Malmo in the Champions League on October 20th. He then missed 3 consecutive games in the Premier League. Although the Blues played pretty well during the Lukaku injury, all fans of this London club have been still looking forward to his recovery.

If everything is alright, Lukaku can play in the 12th Premier League game against Leicester this weekend. Playing on the Foxes’ King Power stadium is not easy so that the return of a strong attacker like Lukaku will be necessary. This season, Lukaku goals this season for Chelsea have been only 3 in the Premier League but manager Thomas Tuchel is still satisfied with what he has been showing. The German considered that Lukaku’s value is not only due to his ability to score.  

 

Chelsea are having 26 points after 11 games in the Premier League. They are leading the competition with 3 points ahead of second-ranked teams  Manchester City and West Ham. They have been also having only 4 conceding goals until now. The reigning Champions League winners have been still proving that they are one of the most brilliant candidates for the Premier League title this season.
