But he joined the squad in a full session yesterday and could be fit for Sunday FA Cup semi-final v Crystal Palace.

The trophy is Chelseas last cup win this season and comes just five days after the club were heartbroken following their dramatic elimination from the Champions League quarter-finals.

That 5-4 aggregate loss to Real Madrid means Chelsea now need to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season to be back in Europe’s top competition next season.

Lukaku has only played 41 minutes of football in the last four games and has been plagued with ankle problems for a couple of weeks.

The FA Cup has proved to be a much-needed lifeline for Lukaku, worth £97million.

Chelsea’s record signing has scored in every round so far, while he has yet to score in the Premier League this year.

In the meantime, Conor Gallagher is not allowed to play against his home club.

The Chelsea Academy product, on loan to Palace, is forced to sit out the game.

Chelsea repulsed Palace’s approach to gain permission to select Gallagher for the game.

It is believed that though the loan business bans Gallagher from playing his home club, changes could have been made before the draw.

In the past, the west Londoners have allowed stars on loan to play against them but not this time.
