Chelsea will hope Romelu Lukaku is fully fit to face Brentford on Saturday afternoon - and gets back to scoring ways in the Premier League.

The Belgian netted three in his first three after signing from Inter Milan, but has drawn blanks since then against Spurs, Man City and in the win over Southampton before the international break, as well as against Juventus in the Champions League.
