Romelu Lukaku will make his first appearance from the start for Roma this coming weekend.

The Belgian striker returned to Trigoria earlier today following two weeks of international duty.

According to La Repubblica, Lukaku is certain to start against Empoli in a partnership with Paulo Dybala who recently completed his recovery.

Jose Mourinho is relying on Lukaku to lift the Giallorossi and lead them to their first win of the new season after collecting only point in three Serie A games.
