Chelsea FC XI vs Norwich: Predicted lineup, confirmed team news and injury latest for Premier League game #CHENOR



Injuries to Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner means Kai Havertz is Chelsea’s only option at centre forward against Norwich on Saturday.

Lukaku twisted his ankle in Wednesday’s Champions League tie against Malmo, with fears he could have suffered ligament damage.

Werner appeared to strain his hamstring, meaning both could be set for prolonged periods out of action.

Christian Pulisic is nearing a return from his own ankle problem, but Thomas Tuchel is short of numbers up front.

Hakim Ziyech is likely to come back in, with Mason Mount on the other side of a front three with Havertz

In midfield Chelsea have plenty of options, with Jorginho looking refreshed on Wednesday – scoring two penalties – and Saul Niguez coming off the bench after his difficult start since his deadline day loan move from Atletico Madrid.

Chelsea predicted XI: Mendy; Christensen, Silva, Rudiger; James, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell; Mount, Havertz, Ziyech
