Frank Lampard confirms Timo Werner role at Chelsea

Timo Werner is expected to revive his form in Chelsea’s clash against Man City.

Summer signing Timo Werner has struggled for goals since moving to the Premier League with some suggesting to drop the striker out of the forward line.

Frank Lampard believes that Werner would be crucial in facing a team like Man City where there is a possibility of a more open game than the rest.

Lampard said: “City will be a different game but we are a possession-based team and we usually have the lion’s share of possession.

“We have generally found some low-block teams against us over the last period that we haven’t broken down well enough when actually we were earlier in the season so there are little tweaks we need to make to that.

“Timo’s attributes can be very powerful on the counter-attack but there are lots of things that we need in the game against Manchester City on and off the ball. He’s always a huge weapon on that and I think he will become a huge weapon against low blocks as well.

“It’s not that he can’t play against that – he’s sharp and he can finish so sometimes the onus is on us to get the ball into the right areas.”
