Lukaku confirmed to HLN Sport, in a press conference after the game, that he will undergo a scan before returning to Chelsea.
The Blues will hope the injury is nothing to be worried about following his immediate impact on the team.
I’ll have a scan of my thigh first. I have been struggling with a minor issue for a while.Then I will return to Chelsea.
