Chelsea kicked off our Premier League campaign with a 3-1 victory over Brighton, with Timo Werner making his Chelsea debut.

Werner played a part in Chelsea’s opener when he was taken down by Mat Ryan in the area following an interception high up the field, which allowed Jorginho to score from 12 yards.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has given his verdict on Werner’s Chelsea debut against Brighton.

“I love the way Timo pops up in different areas,” said Lampard.

“He’s not a front man that attaches to centre-backs. Sometimes he can start from a bit deeper and we saw that with the burst of pace [for the penalty] the ball was overplayed but he still got there.

“He has that about him. He’s got a real hunger to score goals. I think we saw a lot of signs of what he’s going to bring.”
