Chelsea are set to be without Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner as they host bottom-side Norwich in the Premier League this afternoon.

The Premier League leaders named a strong side for their Champions League group stage match against Malmo this week and although they cruised to a 4-0 win, the victory was overshadowed by the injuries to both Lukaku and Werner in the first half.

Thomas Tuchel confirmed afterwards that the pair will be out for “some games”, with Lukaku injuring his ankle and Werner suffering a hamstring problem.

The Blues are still heavy favourites ahead of this meeting of top against bottom in the Premier League, with Norwich coming into this game still on the hunt for their first win of the campaign.
