Timo Werner has scored 10 goals and provided nine assists for his team-mates – three more than any other Chelsea star.

The German international helped provide the breakthrough for Hakim Ziyech against Manchester City on Saturday, after making a darting run and delivering a cross to find the Moroccan to tap into an empty net.

And since former PSG coach Thomas Tuchel has arrived in West London, Werner has had an upturn in fortunes.

Initially, many labelled Werner a flop after a number of glaring misses became the norm for the shot-shy striker.

Even for Germany things weren’t any better – when he was ridiculed for missing a sitter against North Macedonia in a shock 2-1 defeat.

Last week, there were even calls that Werner should be taken out of the firing line and dropped by Tuchel by pundit Clinton Morrison.

He told BBC 5 Live: “Chelsea have got other attacking options – it just depends on how long Tuchel wants to stick with Timo Werner.

“Listen, Werner is not a bad player. You don’t become a bad player overnight.

“It’s just at the moment, he’s getting into positions and not being clinical.
