Lukaku and Werner both returned from injuries and were on the bench. Werner got some minutes, Lukaku didn't. I wonder if that is just coincidence or if it is a hint who is preferred by Tuchel.It will be interesting to see if Lukaku returning upsets the system a bit. With him in the side the average xG for Chelsea in the PL was 1.5, in the games he's missed the average xG has been 2.5. The big caveat is the level of opposition was much better in the games he played but it does feel as though he's not really a neat fit.
