Thomas Tuchel confirms which games Romelu Lukaku & Werner will miss for Chelsea

Thomas Tuchel confirms which games Romelu Lukaku & Werner will miss for Chelsea

Thomas Tuchel has provided an injury update on Romelu Lukaku ahead of Chelsea’s meeting with Norwich City this weekend.

Chelsea vs Norwich

Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off will see Chelsea play host to Norwich.

On paper, this tie looks set to be one of the easiest to predict of the entire 2021/22 season.

Chelsea will kick off at Stamford Bridge occupying top spot in the English top-flight. The Blues have won six, drawn one and lost one (vs Manchester City) in the Premier League this term, all whilst scoring 16 and shipping just three goals in the process.

Norwich, on the other hand, have been the complete opposite. The Canaries sit dead bottom of the division having drawn two and lost six, scoring just two and conceding a staggering 16 goals.

A Chelsea win seems inevitable on Saturday, even if the Blues are not able to call upon their big-money striker.

The games Lukaku & Werner will miss

Chelsea faced off with Malmo in the Champions League earlier this week. And, during the clash, the Londoners lost both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner to injury.

It has since been reported that the former is facing at least two weeks out.

In turn, Thomas Tuchel has now provided an update on Lukaku, during his pre-Norwich press conference on Friday.

The German has confirmed that both the Belgian and Werner will miss out at the weekend, and then against Southampton in the League Cup. After this, Tuchel stated that Chelsea ‘will see’ about the pair:

“There’s no big news. They will be out of Southampton too but from there we will see. They are both having treatment and feeling positive.”
