The Blues dominated the Champions League game against Malmo to a landslide 4-0 victory.
However, the victory left the club with some problems due to the injuries suffered by Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner.
The two players are the main pieces in Thomas Tuchel’s attack scheme, and now the German coach will have to be creative to replace both players.
This situation has created an excellent opportunity for outcasts like Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech, and Kai Havertz.
Tuchel said this is the opportunity for these players to show what they are made of.
“Guys who waited for their chance need to step up and prove what they can do.
“The race is on and the guys who will start against Norwich in the next game have our trust and we will have our solutions. Tuchel said and added
“Let’s stay positive. We won games before without Timo, we won games before without Romelu. These things happen. ”
“I can tell you what you saw. We have a twist of the ankle with Romelu and a muscle injury, hamstring with Timo, so they will be some days out.
“Normally we are in a good place injury wise. We only had Christian Pulisic out but we miss everyone. We have a lot of games to play and competitions. Now we have to find solutions. Don’t make excuses. ”
During this season, Lukaku has played 11 games with the blues in all competitions and scored 4 goals. For his part, Werner has had 10 appearances in all competitions and scored two goals.
While both players are key to the club, the men on the bench are of quality. For example, Hudson-Odoi has participated in 104 first-team games and scored 13 goals.
