Chelsea’s forward man, Romelu Lukaku, has been left injured during a game against Malmo. The Belgian suffered an injury in the club’s Champions League game at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, October 20th, 2021.
The 28-year-old was substituted from the game after he was tackled by Lasse Nielsen which lead to a penalty for the Blues.
He was replaced by Kai Havertez by Thomas Tuchel after he was seen struggling with the lower part of his right leg. The decision to substitute him was a precaution so that the injury won’t be aggregated.
The injury came up days after Thomas Tuchel complained that the striker’s goal drought was caused by mental tiredness. According to the German, Lukaku has played a lot of games for Belgium during the summer in the Euro 2020 and also at the UEFA Nations League.
