Tuchel said he has held clear-the-air talks with Lukaku and the player was returning to training on Tuesday. Timo Werner could also be back in Chelsea's team after injury while Tottenham is waiting on what manager Antonio Conte described as “a couple of situations" regarding potential COVID-19 cases in his squad.
