Romelu Lukaku: Chelsea omit striker from squad for Liverpool game in Premier League – Sky Sports

Chelsea have omitted Romelu Lukaku from their squad for the game against Liverpool on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

In an interview with Sky Italy recorded a few weeks ago but aired this week, Lukaku said he was unhappy with his role at the club and would like to return to Inter Milan in the near future.

Lukaku, 28, has scored in his last two Premier League appearances – against Aston Villa and Brighton – following his return to the Chelsea squad after testing positive for Covid-19.

‘Bad news on a day Chelsea need a result’

Sky Sports News’ Gary Cotterill at Stamford Bridge:

“I’ve checked with the club hierarchy and they say it is club policy not to comment on team news before the team sheets are out.
