Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner will miss out on games against Norwich City this weekend and Southampton in midweek.
The Belgium international suffered an injury during the Blues’ 4-0 win over Malmo in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Chelsea will be without both available for the bottom team on Saturday. The same goes for the Carabao Cup against Southampton next Tuesday.
“To make the question longer, how about Pulisic? They are all out tomorrow and probably the Southampton game and then we’ll see,” Tuchel said. worry but will miss the next two games for sure.”
“I don’t think it makes sense to speculate on how long a player rests. ‘Cause you never know Some symptoms may return earlier or later than scheduled. Both of them felt good and weren’t too worried.”
The German coach also said he did not regret sending Lukaku in against Malmo, although he said before the game that the player had passed too many appearances.
“Psychologically, he’s been on the pitch a lot. But that doesn’t mean we have to rest him, Jorginho and Mason Mount are in the same spot. It’s like this, they have to play a lot of football. He’s the last person to touch the ball.”
