It’s been two games without a goal for Chelsea striker Timo Werner.

Werner was signed during the summer, as the Blues needed a top striker for the season, and the German has shown promise of what he can do.

Werner is yet to register his first Chelsea goal and drew blanks in the games against Brighton and Liverpool, although he won a penalty for the club in both matches.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has admitted that he has been impressed with what he has seen from Werner so far, and has backed the German to start banging the goals soon.

“Yeah, I’m very pleased with his start,” Lampard said after the defeat to Liverpool.

“We brought him to the club for the attributes that we’re seeing. We’re seeing speed, we’re seeing individual moments, we will see goals from him, I know that.

“I thought with the second half and how difficult it would have been for him and Mason [Mount], instead he comes up with a moment that could get us back into the game.

“I’m delighted with him. And we’ll see a lot more. And also his manner, his way, his desire to work for the team, his behaviour in the dressing room, I’m delighted with Timo.”
