Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has compared Timo Werner to Michael Owen but has warned the striker isn’t technically gifted.

“He predominantly likes to play on the left, but he’s quite versatile,” Cascarino told talkSPORT.

“His outstanding feature is his pace; his pace over 10 yards is extraordinary, lightning-quick… Michael Owen-like.

“He tries to get on the back of defenders all the time and comes in off the left to try and get the goals in. He gets a lot of one-on-ones and he’s a real handful.

“But there is a lot of improvement to be made; I don’t think he’s the most technically gifted. When I’ve watched him I’ve always thought his touch is a bit off for someone who has so many goals.

“But there is a real danger player in there, and I think Lampard wants goals from more areas in his team.”
