After his Premier League debut against Brighton, new Chelsea striker Timo Werner admitted that it was a difficult experience.

Although Werner adapted well to the game play of the Premier League, the 24-year-old understands that the nature of the game in England is more physical and robust.

Werner has now revealed that despite the different defensive systems in display in the Premier League, he’d adjust differently to each game.

“English football is very fast and there are a lot of different styles of football, sometimes with five or three at the back, sometimes like us with four at the back,” the new Chelsea striker admitted.

“There are different systems and teams are different in how they play football – a lot of teams press high like Brighton did against us but other teams sit deep in their own half.

“In the end, it will be down to us and how we play our football because we want to keep the ball, take different positions, rotate, move and create spaces for other players. When we play good, a lot of teams will have to stay deeper.”
