Werner needs to be dropped - Cole

Chelsea legend and BT Sport pundit Joe Cole has advise for Frank Lampard.

He has told the Blues manager to bench Timo Werner for a little while – up until at least the German finds his scoring boots.

The former RB Leipzig forward is suffering his worst goal drought and Cole believes Werner needs to sharpen his finishing.

“I think Werner, when he comes in off that left, he’s very, very dangerous,” Cole said on Amazon Prime Video after Chelsea’s loss to Wolves on Wednesday.

“I just think he just needs to brush up on his finishing, but he’s a young striker and he will do that.

“So I’ve got no doubts he’ll be a top player for Chelsea but there’s options now and he [Lampard] needs to move it around.

“[Hakim] Ziyech and [Callum] Hudson-Odoi to come back in, freshen it up at some point. Take Werner out, bring him back in.

“It’s a marathon to win a title usually, and certainly this year. You’ve got to use your whole squad.

“So Werner maybe come out, bring the other lads back in.”

Chelsea are suffering a lull after a good run after losing two matches on the bounce.
