The Manchester United striker has been in Belgium receiving specialist treatment on his ankle injury.
But he is winning his battle to play at Wembley against former team Chelsea after getting crocked a fortnight ago in the 2-1 win over Arsenal.
Lukaku, 24, is set to return to the country tomorrow when United medics will check him at the club’s Carrington HQ.
Then he is hopeful of returning to full training the following day, giving him plenty of time for United’s biggest game of the season.
Lukaku could have pushed himself to play in today’s final Premier League game against Watford but did not want to risk his World Cup by rushing back.
He responded well to treatment in Belgium, where he worked with specialist physio Lieven Maesschalck to speed his recovery away from his club.
Maesschalck, who runs the the Move To Cure clinic in Antwerp, is also head physio of the Belgian national team.
And he gave Lukaku one-on-one sessions to make sure he will return for a final game this season, with Burnley’s Steven Defour also at the fitness centre.
Jose Mourinho angrily blasted his players for failing to step in for Lukaku in the defeat to Brighton.
The Special One insisted the performance of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial up front showed why he always picks Lukaku, who is set to go straight back in his team for Wembley.
