Timo Werner was pleased with his contribution in the 1-0 win over West Ham United.
Chelsea collected an important three points with the German knocking in the only goal off of Ben Chilwell’s grounded cross.
Werner said, “The second chance I have to score, but I have to come back slowly. One goal is enough. Two goals might be too much for the beginning!
“I’m very happy that we won this game. It’s a big win for us in the race for the top four. It’s the best feeling after winning a game to score a goal. It was really important for me and for the whole team. It’s great to be back on the scoresheet.”
Werner could have sent Chelsea 2-0 clear but missed another golden opportunity. He continued, “Callum [Hudson-Odoi] said to me I’ll score today, and 30 seconds later Tammy [Abraham] came to me and said I’d score today. They told me to point to them when I score.
“This season it’s not only the confidence, maybe it’s also luck. Last year the ball always went in, this year it’s different. I’m confident that the chances like my second one will also go in in the next weeks and months.
“The draw against Brighton was tough for us because we wanted to get the win before the West Ham game. Now we have this gap to West Ham. It was really important ahead of a big game on Tuesday, when we play against Real Madrid.”
