Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Chelsea could line up for Saturday's Premier League clash with Norwich City.
Chelsea will be forced to work around the absences of two key attackers for Saturday's Premier League clash with basement boys Norwich City.
The Blues lost Romelu Lukaku to an ankle injury after just 23 minutes of their clash with Malmo, while Timo Werner also came off in the first half with a hamstring strain.
Neither attacker is expected to make the cut this weekend, so Kai Havertz is the most likely candidate to lead the line at Stamford Bridge.
The German will likely be supported by Hakim Ziyech and Mason Mount, with Christian Pulisic still a major doubt with his own ankle problem.
Reece James ought to return to the right-hand side as Cesar Azpilicueta is moved further back, while Ben Chilwell has found his magic touch recently and should keep Marcos Alonso out of the team for now.
Jorginho was the star of the show against Malmo and is unlikely to lose his place in midfield, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek could start his third Premier League game in a row as N'Golo Kante is rested.
Antonio Rudiger played the full 90 minutes against Malmo after recovering from an injury, so Thomas Tuchel may be reluctant to throw him straight back in here, especially with Trevoh Chalobah representing a strong option for change.
Chelsea possible starting lineup: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Christensen; James, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Chilwell; Ziyech, Mount; Havertz
