The medical team has confirmed that this Belgium striker will be out for over 2-3 weeks. Staying over 2-3 weeks without playing means that he will miss some games.

These games are against Norwich, Southampton, Newcastle, Malmo and Burnley.

Chelsea are kind of lucky because these games do not look so tough. The blues will play against Manchester United in November and that is the possible time Lukaku might return.

Thomas Tuchel will have to used Kai Havertz at the false 9 position or promote another striker from the academy. Lukaku's absence will really mean a lot to Chelsea coupled with Timo Werner's hamstring injury.
