Chelsea thrashed Malmo 4-0 in the Uefa Champions league on Wednesday. The Blues and defending Champions league winners had a dominant display and were deserved winners thanks to goals from Jorginho 2, Kai Havertz and Andres Christensen.
But it was not all smooth sailing as Thomas Tuchel's men lost two key Players to injury during the match. First it was Belgian Striker, Romelu Lukaku who got injured after twisting his ankle in the lead up to Chelsea's second goal. Lukaku's strike partner in the night, Timo Werner followed suit with a twisted ankle of his own and was in obvious pain before being assisted by the club's Medical staff out of the pitch.
It was not a great sight seeing Chelsea's two strikers leave the pitch due to injury but it did not affect the game much as Chelsea's win put them in a great position to qualify out of the group stage.
It is left to be seen for how long both Lukaku and Werner will be out of action but it might be for the foreseeable future considering the seriousness of an ankle injury which both Players suffered.
