A couple of Chelsea players will be absent for their various countries during this international break. This is particularly because of injury and interestingly, these players would likely return to action for Chelsea after the international break. Recently, Thomas Tuchel's side have been struggling to secure points because of the absence of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner. This is so much evident during the 1-1 draw against Burnley. Chelsea created a lot of chances that were enough to secure a comfortable victory against Burnley but, the absence of a sharp striker culminated in draw for Chelsea.
However, Chelsea may become unstoppable after the international break. This is primarily because, a lot of injured Chelsea players have been scheduled to return to action once the international break is over.
This implies that Chelsea would continue their remaining fixtures with the presence of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner in the starting XI. Prior to their injuries, the duo of Werner and Lukaku were already forming a formidable attack option at Chelsea. Though, Chelsea managed to secure vital points in their absence, their return would certainly energise the team for a busy November and December.
More so, Mateo Kovacic would likely return to the heart of Chelsea's midfield after the international break. The Croatian playmaker was sidelined after he picked up a knock during training. Since his absence, Thomas Tuchel has tried different combinations in Chelsea's midfield but the expertise of Kovacic could not be replaced. Undoubtedly, the return of Mateo Kovacic, Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku would certainly make Chelsea unstoppable.
