Romelu Lukaku hobbles down tunnel with first-half injury as Blues romp to victory.
Report as Jorginho’s double, Andreas Christensen’s first Chelsea goal and Kai Havertz’s smart finish give Chelsea a 4-0 victory over Malmo in Champions League Group H; Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner are both injured for the hosts
Jorginho’s double from the spot helped Chelsea romp to a 4-0 win over Malmo in a victory marred by injuries to strikers Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner.
Thomas Tuchel admitted both strikers will be out for “a while” after they were both forced off in the first half of an otherwise sterling night for the Blues, who romped to their biggest win under his management to reignite their Champions League campaign.
“We need more examinations to be more precise but they will be out for some matches,” the Blues boss said, barely a day after telling reporters Lukaku had been suffering from mental and physical fatigue.
