Chelsea strikers, Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner will be out of the club’s next two games.
This was revealed by the manager, Thomas Tuchel during a press conference ahead of their Premier League game against Norwich City.
The German tactician hinted that Kai Havertz will be deployed into the false a nine role, adding that he is capable to do it.
He added that he had to reveal this to avoid speculations like what happened to Christian Pulisic.
Tuchel was keen not to dwell too much on the striking duo’s absence as he considered the impact their unavailability will have on his selection for the Norwich game and beyond.
“There is no big news for Romelu and Timo. They are out for tomorrow and they are out for the Southampton game, and from there we see what’s next.
“I don’t think it makes sense to go into speculation about how long this is going to be. If we had done this with Christian Pulisic, maybe you would think I’m a liar and I’m hiding something. You never know. Things can be shorter or longer than expected.
“The one thing I can tell you for sure is they are both in treatment. Both are feeling positive, not too worried, and are out for the next two games for sure.”
