The striker had two international breaks against Germany after his earlier problems with Chelsea. He keeps interfering again and again. Kai Havertz was the first cause for concern. The German international had to sit out the win against Armenia because of mild flu, according to Hans Fricke. And then there was the news of Romelu Lukaku, which caused even greater concern for Chelsea supporters.

The striker scored a goal and an assist in Belgium’s 3-0 win over the Czech Republic. Not a bad way for the 28-year-old to celebrate his 100th international game. The real headlines came after the game, however. Lukaku will return to Chelsea Football Club earlier than expected due to his suspension for Wednesday’s game against Belarus. But that was only after he underwent a check-up on his thigh.
Since Lukaku played 81 minutes in Sunday night’s Belgium game, it is safe to assume that his thigh problems are not very serious. Havertz is expected to recover from his illness when he returns to Cobham later this week. However, this means some uncertainty for Thomas Tuchel as he will not be able to field both of them in his starting eleven for Saturday’s Premier League Football match against Aston Villa.
Fortunately, Chelsea has a variety of offensive options at their disposal. For one, there is Mason Mount, who is currently playing for the England national team. Christian Pulisic, although he won’t return from the US national team until Friday. Meanwhile, Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi have spent the international break at Cobham. They will be fresh. If Lukaku and Havertz are unavailable this weekend, Tuchel has another option to fall back on. Timo Werner.
Werner’s volatility has been well known since his move from RB Leipzig to Chelsea for £50 million in the summer of 2020. There have been goals, there have been assists and there have been effective performances. However, these have been accompanied by frustrating performances and a surprising lack of composure in the penalty area. Confidence played a part in Werner’s struggles at Chelsea there were a few months last season when he completely lacked confidence.
When you come to a new club, sometimes you know that everyone expects a lot from you and wants you to score goals for the club. Maybe it was so important in my mind that I had to score a goal in every game or be the one to score all the goals. Werner came to Chelsea as one of the most ruthless goal scorers in Europe. No wonder, he scored 34 goals in his last game at Leipzig. For more details about Chelsea Football Tickets.
That clinical dominance has yet to return to his game. Against Crystal Palace, Chelsea’s Premier League Football opener, and Werner’s last outing for the Blues, he created chances and looked frantic in his attempts to control the passing game. What Werner needed was a goal. More than one, to be honest. Fortunately for him, he scored two goals during this international break.
The first was against Liechtenstein and the second against Armenia. The 25-year-old isn’t a soccer player, but he’s scored in two consecutive games and that’s a good thing. Werner had one more game to play for Germany before returning to Chelsea. However, with his fit and well, Tuchel will have to decide if Lukaku and Havertz are fit to play against Villa, who will have to do without their regular goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, who has joined the Argentine national team.
For the first time in months, Werner has the motivation to score goals. It would only be logical for him to take that momentum into Saturday’s game at Stamford Bridge, confident that the striker will continue his form. It’s a gamble for Tuchel, as Chelsea can’t afford to drop points in the fight for the Premier League title. However, if it pays off, Werner could finally blossom into the striker everyone expected him to be when he arrived over 12 months ago.
