It is impossible to dispute the notion that the German international striker Timo Werner He has yet to fully adjust to life in the Premier League at Chelsea.

Since his high-profile Bundesliga stint warned RB Leipzig last season, the Stuttgart native is well below what his scoring skills had shown him during his successful stint in Saxony.

To date, Werner has found the back of the net only twelve times in 57 appearances in all competitions in a goal return of just a shadow over 0.20 goals / game, despite his solid contributions of ~ 0. , 50 goals / game (6 goals and 12 assists in 35 games) in the Premier League last season.

But current boss Thomas Tuchel has jumped to his compatriot’s defense during his press conference prior to the Carabao Cup, stating that Werner continues to progress;

It gave us a clear impression of how dangerous he and Romelu can be together. There was some disappointment with the Euro and the first matches, I don’t think he was happy with his performances.

What you don’t see is that he is more relaxed, more fluid in his movements and that is why he entered early against Tottenham. There are clear signs that it is okay. “

The German international just needs time

Werner came off the bench against local and national rivals Tottenham at the weekend in Chelsea’s 3-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and landed an assist during his 20-minute cameo in which Antonio Rüdiger scored his first goal. it’s from the season.

Although his league goal doubt continues (0 goals in his last eight league appearances) in the wake of failing an absolute babysitter against Spurs, Tuchel once again spoke positively about the positives around the player;

“It also shows what Romelu is like, he knows how a striker who lacks goals feels. For me, Timo was in dangerous positions and he was not too far away, in and around the area. He had the assistance that was well done, this is important. How he trains, not only in quality but in attitude. He is freer in his movements and with more confidence. Sometimes it takes time. “

More importantly, now no longer expected to lead the line alone, a possible growing understanding between Werner and Lukaku could benefit the German in a relationship on the field similar to his highly effective partnership with Danish international Yussuf Poulsen during his days in Leipzig. . .

Not all players start to function when they move from club to club, and while the jury is still out on Timo Werner and his ability to settle on the English shores, history dictates that if he finally finds his niche, Chelsea will certainly reap. . the benefits of his indisputable talent.
