Thomas Tuchel said: “Romelu has a twisted ankle and Timo has an Achilles tendon injury. I guess they will be out for a few days. We only have Christian Pulisic. Of course we will miss them. But we don’t have any excuses.”
“Romelu twisted his ankle in a foul in the penalty area. Timo injured his hamstring. Both of them will take a certain level of rest. They will miss some games. I don’t regret sending them both on the field together. These things can happen. It was bad luck.”
