Timo Werner must have had enough about the rugged defending exhibited by the Premier League defenders, and had a taste of it when Chelsea played a 1-1 draw with Brighton in a friendly fixture at the Amex Stadium.

Werner was on target in that game, and he has now spoken on the physical nature of the defenders, although he also expects to beat them with his pace.

“The defenders in England are more robust than in the Bundesliga,” said Werner.

“It’s very, very, much more physical in the Premier League.

“I have to develop myself and take on this physical aspect. English football is very fast.

“That suits me because I am too have reasonably good speed.”

Werner bagged his first Blues goal just four minutes into the game against Brighton, and Werner revealed after the game that he hopes the goal against Brighton is the first of many in a Chelsea shirt.

He posted on Instagram: “Good start, first of hopefully many goals.”
