UEFA Champions League

Lukaku and Werner's injuries will affect Chelsea, as they will be without a striker for some games

Both were forced by Chelsea before halftime in their 4-0 Champions League win on Wednesday night, and Lukaku fell victim to a terror challenge from Lasse Nielsen before Werner ripped the ball off him with the hamstring.

In his absence, the impromptu pairing Callum Hudson-Odoi and Kai Havertz went strong for the start of Chelsea's next game on Saturday lunchtime against Norwich and combined for third place for the Blues, which was undoubtedly carried over home for the German in the next 17 days Tuchel.

He will be glad that the Blues' rivals are teamless in the first half of the Premier League and in Europe they will only face one second leg against Malmö, who were defeated on Wednesday. Romelu sprained his ankle with the foul in the area and Timo has a hamstring injury. It will take a while for both of you. We need more research to be more specific, but they will be available for some games.

Despite Chelsea's relatively strong opponents and his busy schedule, Tuchel's lineup against Malmö was not far from the best and after the disappointing loss to Juventus in their last European Cup game, the head coach He emphasized the importance of each game in the competition as the Blues try to keep their crown. He said We go through the games step by step, there is no game more important than the game we are playing that day."

Jorgi Jorginho didn't play against Brentford, we were out with Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who was there during the international break. Hudson-Odoi and Havertz appeared on strike partners for the first time in their careers, with early signs of construction chemistry. between the two obviously in the style of Chelsea's third goal. Hudson-Odoi drove out of midfield before finding Havertz's run with an excellent direct pass that shot home in style.

Tuchel said Always, always an opportunity and it is always necessary to prove a point. You can now prove a point, so we will have some games without Romelu and Timo, so everyone is invited to go on the field for minutes. When they are in the field, they have to show their hunger and determination to be determined and be in the area.

That's right and they did it today but there is still room for improvement and on Saturday we need the same hunger and determination from those who start with us because we need goals to win games. We have to find solutions without Romelu and Timo, that's clear. Everyone will take part in order to be decisive for us.
