Anyone who watched Timo Werner play for RB Leipzig knows his quality and class. However, there were question raised as to his ability to adapt to the English Premier League. In England defenders are stronger, tougher and faster, and of course there is the proverbial ‘can he do it on a cold rainy night in stoke’ question.
Timo Werner is not the strongest player, but it’s what he can on the ball that is so inspiring. His right foot is magical, and he has the ability to deliver huge treating to defenders and end up with goal.
It’s not only his vision, but his technique and execution; he sees things that no one else sees, but he also has the skill set to complete them. His exhibition since arrived at Stamford Bridge was nothing short of extraordinary.
Werner made his debut for Chelsea in their pre-season clash with Brighton and he get his first goal in Blues shirt as the matches ended 1-1 draw.
On September 15, the German hitman made first Premier League debut in Chelsea shirt as they encounter with Brighton.
The matches ended 3-1 favourite Frank Lampard’s side but Werner is not netting, and despite he failed to get scoresheet, Werner won the penalty for the opener on the south coast which saw the Blues go onto 3-1 following goals from Reece James and Kurt Zouma.
Since then, Werner has started to find his feet in recent weeks, scoring seven goals in his last seven games, including a brace against Rennes in the Uefa Champions League last week.
Though he has taken little time to adapt to Premier League life, Werner is now showing exactly why Chelsea were triggered his £53million release clause.
So far this season, Timo Werner has scored 8 goals, made three assists and won four penalties in just 12 appearances for Chelsea.
