Timo Werner hailed for his performance against Southampton last night.
The German striker scored a brace last night against the Saints at St Mary’s Stadium in a 6-0 goal affair.
Werner has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge as he managed only one Premier League goal this season before the Southampton game.
The 26-year-old has refused to give up on his situation at the West London club and Tuchel is delighted with his response last night.

“Timo was playing in his favourite position, and he loves to play with Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and Mateo Kovacic,” said Tuchel.
“He has a connection to these players. He loves the double striker position, the half left position.
“It was an opponent where we could imagine we’d find spaces in behind because it was a higher attacking opponent.
“Everything was set out for him to deliver, honestly.
“It was for him to show that he’s still an important player for this group and that’s exactly what he did. It was necessary, strong but necessary.”
