Chelsea facing striker crisis with Lukaku, Werner injured

Tuchel Thomas

After Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner both went off injured against Malmo on Wednesday night, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is facing a striking dilemma.

Jorginho (2), Andreas Christensen, and Kai Havertz scored for the Blues in the Champions League match, which they won 4-0.

The knocks taken by their main frontmen, though, overshadowed their resounding triumph.

Lukaku was taken off in the 20th minute with a feared ankle injury after collapsing under a tackle inside the box.

Werner quickly followed him off the bench, complaining of a hamstring injury.

Tuchel will be hoping that either or both strikers are fit for this weekend’s Premier League game against bottom team Norwich City.
