Chelsea employer Thomas Tuchel insists he has no remorses over beginning Romelu Lukaku in their 4-0 win over Malmo, in spite of the striker getting an ankle injury.

Tuchel had actually alerted at his pre-match interview that Lukaku was being overplayed and was tired, however he began the Belgian up leading with Timo Werner for Wednesday night’s win regardless.

That returned to haunt Chelsea as the duo both hopped off hurt prior to half-time, however Tuchel states he does not be sorry for beginning the £100m male.

“If I knew before [that Lukaku would get injured] I wouldn’t have done it,” Tuchel stated, through football.london.

“But you can’t know it before and it was necessary that he was on the pitch and he started very strong. I spoke with him about the situation, that I think he carries a bit of mental fatigue around with him. I think that is also normal but he is our number nine and is our reference upfront.
