Havertz sidelined with hamstring injury

Chelsea attacker Kai Havertz could be doubtful for the weekend's Premier League clash against Manchester United



The Germany international picked up a hamstring injury during the 3-0 win league win over Leicester City last week.

He was initially deemed doubtful to face Juventus tonight, and has now been left out of the matchday squad altogether.

It appears that he could be uncertain to face the Red Devils on Sunday, but the Blues have sufficient options in the squad.

Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner are back after respective injuries, and Thomas Tuchel could field a specialist striker.

Christian Pulisic has been picked to play as the false number nine tonight, and he could keep his place with a strong performance.

Pulisic returned to scoring ways against Leicester. Hakim Ziyech bagged the assist for him. He has also made the XI against Juventus.

The Blues will progress to the Champions League last 16 with a point while a victory over Juventus secures them top spot in the group.
