The golf in class between Chelsea and Bayern Munich was evident last season, as the Blues were beaten 7-1 on aggregate against the German champions.

Chelsea lost the first leg 3-0 at Stamford Bridge, and as at that time, Timo Werner hadn’t been signed by the club. The second leg wasn’t any better as Chelsea lost 4-1, with Tammy Abraham scoring the only goal of the game for the Blues.

Werner who signed up for Chelsea back in June, has now admitted that he was worried about the defeat against Bayern.

Asked whether it was shocking watching Bayern’s comprehensive win over Chelsea, Werner told cfbayern.com: “I would be lying if I said it wasn’t like that.

“The 3-0 home defeat of Chelsea in the first leg against Bayern hadn’t exactly spoken in favour of going to London.

“I have to say that openly because with Leipzig we always played very good and close games against Bayern.”

Werner is now confident about the new look Chelsea team, as he believes the Blues have strengthened their weaknesses, by the calibre of players they signed during the summer.

“With Bayern showing Chelsea their weak points, the club was able to work on the pieces of the puzzle in order to catch up with the future Champions League winners Bayern,” the new Chelsea signing added.

“That’s what Chelsea did.”
