UEFA Champions League

UCL: Double Blow For Chelsea Despite Winning At Half-Time

Chelsea are currently in action against Swedish side, Malmo in the UEFA Champions League and are up by 2-0 at Stamford Bridge with goals coming from Andreas Christensen and a penalty from Jorginho.

Despite being up at halftime, the blues have been hit with a double blow as record signing, Romelu Lukaku was substituted in the 23rd minute due to an ankle injury. The former Inter Milan star won a penalty, but failed to get up, left writhing in agony on the floor.


However, just before the halftime whistle, the blues were forced into their second substitution of the night after Timo Werner picked up an hamstring injury in the 43rd minute.


He was later replaced by Callum Hudson-Odoi.


With both of the players out injured and no update on their injuries, it might be a serious problem for Thomas Tuchel as he enters a crucial period in the Premier League. They are currently leading the table in the EPL.
