In Chelsea's Champions League fixture yesterday with Malmo, Chelsea recorded a 4-0 win over their opponent, Malmo. However, the win over Malmo came at a huge cost for Chelsea as two of their forwards picked up a tie injury during the match. Romelu Lukaku was forced off the match in the 23rd minute, following a challenge from Lasse Nielsen, while Timo Werner on his part also left the pitch in the 44th minute of the first half.
Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel gives an update on Romelu Lukaku & Timo Werner injuries. According to the Chelsea manager, both players will be out for some days after sustaining injuries during the Chelsea 4-0 Champions League win over Malmo. Werner was taken off shortly before half-time after making a late run into the box before falling over, clutching his right hamstring.
Chelsea's 4-0 success against Malmo in the Champions League on Wednesday evening was overshadowed by injuries to Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner. Thomas Tuchel's team had to work hard for their 1-0 victory over Brentford at the weekend, but they looked to be in for a much easier evening against their Swedish opponents after taking a two-goal lead inside the first 20 minutes.
