Timo Werner has been delivered remarkable performance for Chelsea again despite they suffered home defeats to defending champions Liverpool on Sunday afternoon.
The German hitman has not yet officially opened his Chelsea goalscoring accounts, but he still should’ve collected his second pseudo-assist in just as many games after once again winning a penalty.
Unfortunately unlike against Brighton and Hove Albion last week, Jorginho failed to convert against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon. It was the Vice-captain’s first non-shootout miss from the spot in nine tires for Chelsea, one of several individual letdowns and mistakes that happened against the Premier League champions.
Timo Werner had his own head-in-hands moment, too, missing an easy shot from playmaker Kai Havertz square ball, but one never knows how much to read into plays that are just continuations of blatant offsides.
More pertinently, Werner’s movement and overall effort – at both ends of the pitch – was one of the brightest spots for the Blues, just as it was against Brighton and Hove Albion. That’s garnered plenty of earlier praised not only from the manager, but from a former player as well who certainly would’ve appreciated such qualities from a striker.
