Chelsea striker, Romelu Lukaku, has confirmed he will undergo a scan on a thigh injury this week.

The 28-year-old has scored once in two appearances for the Blues, since returning to Stamford Bridge in a £97.5 million deal from Inter Milan last month.

During the international break, Lukaku scored twice in Belgium’s 5-2 win over Estonia last Thursday and once in a 3-0 victory over Czech Republic on Sunday evening.

He is suspended for their World Cup qualifier against Belarus on Wednesday and will now fly to London ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League fixture against Aston Villa on Saturday.

“I’ll have a scan of my thigh first,” Lukaku told HLN after Belgium’s win against Czech Republic.

“I have been struggling with a minor issue for a while. And then I will return to Chelsea.”

Chelsea are also monitoring N’Golo Kante’s ankle injury ahead of the Villa game.

Kante was forced off during the 1-1 draw with Liverpool on August 28 and pulled out of the France squad for their three World Cup qualifiers.
