Thomas Tuchel claims that he " fell into a trap " when he indicated that Chelsea regularly discussed a move for Erling Haaland . The German previously suggested that the Blues held weekly talks over launching a transfer bid for the Borussia Dortmund star.

Although they aren't able to call upon Haaland, Chelsea have still posed a significant attacking threat so far this season, scoring 16 goals in eight Premier League games.

Lukaku, who re-joined the club in the summer, started the season well but hasn't scored in his last four league matches before missing the game against Norwich due to injury.

After securing Champions League glory last season, Tuchel is eager for further success this campaign, with his side currently top of the league.

Haaland, meanwhile, is set to be sidelined for a few weeks because of a hip flexor issue.
