Chelsea flex unnerving attacking threat in demolition of Juventus

    When both Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku hobbled off in Chelsea’s Champions League win over Malmö in October, there was genuine concern that their injuries could derail the Blues’ fine start to the season.

    Two of the Chelsea’s scant options to play through the middle were out for weeks, with some big games on the horizon.

    Just where would the goals come from? Well, everywhere it turns out.

    Aside from the frustrating draw with Burnley and the reverse fixture at Malmö where goals were hard to come by (although they still scored), Chelsea have reached a new attacking plane in the absence of their two main strikers – culminating in the demolition of Juventus on Tuesday night.

    It is such a rare thing in football for a side to adapt and fill the gaps so seamlessly. In the time that Lukaku and Werner have been out, Chelsea have evolved and posed a threat from absolutely everywhere.
