Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Tuchel said: “Kai [Havertz] had a hamstring problem so we took him off and we have some doubts with him.”
Should the former Bayer Leverkusen man be restricted to the sidelines at Stamford Bridge, it will mean that the Chelsea attack needs a shuffle against Juve.
Let’s take a look at the three options that the Blues could deploy. Jamb result
Werner straight back in
Whilst Havertz appears to have been handed an injury blow, one boost for Tuesday’s clash is the return of Werner.
There will be question marks over his fitness and whether he is ready to start the game immediately after his recovery but there is no doubt that Werner is the most obvious candidate to lead the line.
Chelsea line-up: Mendy; Rudiger, Silva, Chalobah; Chilwell, Kante, Jorginho, James; Mount, Hudson-Odoi, Werner.

Give Pulisic opportunity to stretch good form
Speaking of making a return from injury, American Wideman Pulisic netted his first goal since the opening Premier League match of the season with the final strike in the Blues’ 3-0 victory against Leicester City.
He has on regular occasion been deployed at centre-forward and with his confidence restored, could well be selected by Tuchel again should he not wish to risk Werner against Juventus.
Chelsea line-up: Mendy; Rudiger, Silva, Chalobah; Chilwell, Kante, Jorginho, James; Mount, Hudson-Odoi, Pulisic.
Push Loftus-Cheek forwards
Away from the somewhat obvious candidates to lead the line on Tuesday evening, academy graduate Ruben Loftus-Cheek could be a somewhat left-field choice.
The 25-year-old started against Malmo, albeit in a far more withdrawn position, and has displayed his eye for goal in the past with ten goals in the 2018/19 season as the Blues lifted the Europa League title.
Chelsea line-up: Mendy; Rudiger, Silva, Chalobah; Chilwell, Kante, Jorginho, James; Mount, Hudson-Odoi, Loftus-Cheek.
