The injury Romelu Lukaku picked up in the Champions League couldn’t have come at a worse time for FPL managers.

Over 112,000 managers had transferred in the Chelsea forward ahead of the Champions League match on Wednesday evening.

‘We have a twist of the ankle for Romelu and muscle injury and hamstring for Timo, so they will be out for some days.’
