Chelsea have confirmed news that Romelu Lukaku is fit ahead of tomorrow’s match against Aston Villa – and some Blues fans on Twitter are thrilled with excitement.
Chelsea welcome Villa to Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening for a Premier League fixture.
Thomas Tuchel’s side earned seven points from their opening three league matches of the season, so will be hoping to kick on now after the international break. In contrast, opponents Villa have started with a win, draw and defeat.
One piece of news that has delighted the Blues fanbase is that they are set to watch summer signing Lukaku in action.
Chelsea have confirmed that the Belgian frontman has showed “no signs of discomfort” in training at Cobham, despite him previously admitting he’s had a struggle with a minor thigh problem.
The 28-year-old has started both games since re-signing for the London club, which is why you’d be a brave man to go against him starting once again.
His record of six goals in eight games against Villa should give him real confidence going into the weekend.
If he wants to be in the Premier League golden boot race, this could be the perfect chance to throw down a gauntlet.
