Timo Werner Could Kill You If Given Space - Ralph Hassenhutl

Ralph Hasenhuttl was in awe of Timo Werner after 3-3 draw between Chelsea and Southampton.

The German scored twice and assisted the third to give his team the lead but could not go home with all three points.

Hassenhuttl was already aware of Werner’s talents, having coached him at RB Leipzig. After the game, he said, “I knew the moment would come that he scored his first goal in the Premier League. I hoped it would not be against us.

“When you give him space, it’s hard to defend against him. The first goal we made it too easy for him. It’s tough to defend against him. When you are not tight on Timo and Kai Havertz they will kill you.

“But I am really happy that Timo is in England and playing in the Premier League. He’s fantastic for the fans, but it’s good we took a point as otherwise, I wouldn’t be so happy for him.”

Chelsea seem to be finally clicking on the attacking front but continue to suffer due to their defence. Frank Lampard’s men could not hold off a well-drilled side like Southampton. This shows, that further improvements are necessary to the squad.
