One thing new Chelsea signing Timo Werner is known for, is his speed. Werner has many top qualities that made him admired by many clubs, including Liverpool.

His shot power is fierce, as well as his finishing, but one thing people usually rave about is his speed.

Former German defender Roberto Hilbert has admitted that playing against Werner wasn’t an easy task, as the Blues striker is very fast.

He said as quoted by Goal: “Sometimes, he went too far but it was okay because he is a nice young guy. He had a good upbringing and he knows what respect is.

“Werner is a big, big talent. In Germany, he shocked everyone because he got so good so fast. Right now, it is a new day because the Premier League is a step up from the German Bundesliga.

“It will show what level he can reach for the rest of his career, especially in one of the biggest clubs at Chelsea.

“The expectation will be high because he cost a lot from Germany and he will have to pay back that money.

“The pressure will be on every day and it will be interesting to see if he can handle his pressure. I hope he can, I think he is a really good young player. ‘He is able to help the German team and change history there too.”
