Chelsea will improve by the return of Trevoh Chalobah and Reece James to training.
But The German will be without Andreas Christensen for the Tottenham game today, due to back injury.
Tuchel has refused to give too much away regarding James’ plan when asked on Friday, but admitted: “We have a time frame but we will not make it public because otherwise we will just get asked about the timescale.
After all, Tuchel was angry with Lukaku for his display against Manchester City last week.
He does not show off anything to the speed of Timo Werner and is perhaps more limited than Kai Havertz on the ball.
Chelsea won the UEFA Champions League playing Timo and Havertz up-front alongside Mason Mount. maybe Tuchel could decide to go with his tried and tested tactics.
If he does, Hakim Ziyech may not be included despite scoring a wonderful goal against Brighton.
But this could also mean Jorginho will keep his place in midfield alongside with N’Golo Kante.
Due Injury crisis also mean Chelsea boss has a difficult decision to make in defence.
Reece James has not been rightfully replaced (right-wing back) and the Captain, Cesar Azpilcueta playing that position means Malang Sarr may have to start today with The coach confirming Andreas Christensen is out due to Back Injury.
But if Azpilicueta plays as a central defender that could mean Callum Hudson-Odoi or Christian Pulisic play out wide (out of position).
Predicted Chelsea XI: Kepa, Silva, Chalobah, Rudiger Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso, Mount, Lukaku, Werner.
