According to the former Chelsea midfielder, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Kai Havertz will step up and cover for both Romelu Lukaku and Werner who were both injured during Chelsea 4-0 win over Malmo in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Werner went down clutching his right hamstring while Lukaku twisted his ankle after a rash tackle from Malmo defender Lasse Nielsen in the penalty box.
The Chelsea manager told reporters that both players would be missing for some days and Cole believes Hudson-Odoi and Havertz, who replaced Werner and Lukaku against the Swedish champions, can prove their worth.
The Blue tackle Norwich on Saturday, ahead of games against Southampton and Newcastle.
“You don’t ever want to lose your two centre forwards, but if you’re going to lose them, you want to lose them when you’ve got that run of fixtures. They’re very winnable games", Joe Cole told BT Sport.
