Timo Werner is struggling to adapt to the Premier League.

“It does matter how much you cost. It’s always a bit of pressure when you come to a new club,” Werner said.
“But I think I can handle it very well. It’s not something new.
“The pressure is a little bit higher than the previous years but I think good footballers are the best under pressure and that’s my plan, I can do very well under pressure.
“The Premier League is a little bit different to my old league. It’s tougher than I thought. The contact here is harder than in Germany, it’s what I expected but not like this.”
“The beginning was very good, but now after a lot of games I’m struggling a little,” he added.
“I think it’s hard when you play every three days… and on Saturday against teams that can rest the whole week.
“It makes it tough to be the best in every game but the Premier League is very fun to play in.”
