Chelsea forwards Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner are struggling in front of goals this season.
The Belgian has managed 4 goals in 11 games while the German has netted only once this season.
“Maybe we need to try them [Lukaku and Werner] as wing-backs,” Thomas Tuchel joked when asked about their form after the Newcastle game, as quoted by the Sun.
On the other hand, Chelsea’s wing-backs Reece James and Ben Chilwell have been in fine form in front of goals this season and have 8 goals between them so far.
Reecey has scored 4 times while Chilly has registered 4 strikes.
Chelsea will take on Malmo FC on Tuesday in the Champions League group stage the second leg after beating them 4-0 in the first leg fixture. Reece James and Ben Chilwell will hope to continue their fine form in front of goals in this encounter, while Lukaku and Timo Werner are still out injured. The duo is expected to be back after the upcoming November international break.
