Thomas Tuchel provides injury updates on Chelsea pair Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku

Thomas Tuchel provides injury updates on Chelsea pair Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku

Chelsea hammer Malmo

Chelsea ran out comfortable 4-0 winners over Swedish outfit Malmo at Stamford Bridge this evening.

Goals from Kai Havertz, Andreas Christensen and two penalties from Jorginho ensured that the result was never really in doubt, with the Blues now well placed to qualify alongside Juventus for the knockout rounds of the Champions League, of which they are current holders.

However, it proved a damaging night on the injury front, with both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner limping off before half-time, leaving Chelsea to play almost an hour without a recognised striker.

Tuchel issues update on key strike-pairing

When drawn on the pair – both of whom headed straight down the tunnel upon being substituted in the first half – after the clash, Thomas Tuchel provided yet more bad news for the Chelsea faithful, as the German boss revealed:

“We have a twist of the ankle for Romelu and hamstring for Timo. They will be some games out, I guess. We only had Christian Pulisic, we miss everybody but we have to find excuses. We have no excuses.”

Chelsea have a somewhat easy fixture list coming up, facing Burnley, Newcastle and Norwich City in the Premier League as well as an EFL tie against Southampton and another clash with Malmo before the next international break, when the pair would surely be expected to be back.

Will they still be able to find the goals even without their two main strikers? It looks like time for Kai Havertz to step up in a big way.
