Injury update released: Lukaku to bounce back from injury quicker than expected

Lukaku’s representative Pastorello told Sky Sports News;

“I was very worried because Romelu is a player who really wants to play”

“The fact he stayed lying on the pitch so long after the penalty”

“It doesn’t look good to me because he is someone who immediately stands up”

“The fact he was down for four minutes, I was with Petr Cech and I told him while watching the game”

“that it was something I was scared about because he isn’t one to make a fake scene”.

“When he stood up I thought it is not a good sign and now we are waiting for the exams so we will know something more soon”

“But if you see the pictures and the video of the injury”

“the position of the ankle is really under the weight of the body”

“but he is a strong boy and he wants so much to play every game so he will be back stronger soon I am sure”.

“He was very sad actually yesterday as a first reaction but everybody was seeing he was playing a good game”

“I am 100 per cent sure he would have scored goals [had he stayed on]”

“He was on fire but he is really concentrated and will be focused on his recovery as soon as possible”.

“Lukaku has his physio at home so he is working hard every evening even before he goes to sleep”

“So if there is a time to come back it will be earlier than planned.”

Lukaku and Werner will miss a packed schedule for Chelsea over the next few weeks

Tuchel’s side playing five games in 15 days, starting with the visit of Norwich to Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
