Lampard trusting German duo to deliver

Timo Werner and Kai Havertz were brought in this summer from Bundesliga.

They had started well at the club but have faded off slightly off late. However, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has backed them to come well and deliver the goods.

“We always do extra finishing in training and I feel it’s very important to do specific work for strikers,” Lampard told Sky Sports. “I never felt you could score freely at the weekend if you didn’t work on it throughout the week, so that’s a big part of what we do.

“Timo has had a period where it hasn’t gone for him and strikers get judged on goals. He’s getting into positions very regularly and I feel that once he gets a goal or two, we’ll see many more from him. We’re working hard in training as we always do.”

“He was just starting to play really well when he caught Covid and had quite heavy symptoms with it,” Lampard said of Havertz. “It has taken him some time to recover, but he’s getting back to a better place now. He’s a highly talented player, a great young lad with a great attitude.

“I certainly have huge confidence that he’s going to be a really big player for the club. It’s important that we remain patient in the short term, but Kai is a huge talent.”
