Chelsea striker Timo Werner has been praised for his unselfish play in Chelsea’s 3-3 draw against Southampton.

The German international scored a brace and provided the assist for Kai Havertz’s goal against Southampton.

BBC pundit Garth Crooks was impressed with Werner’s unselfish play as he set up Kai Havertz for the third goal instead of obsessively chasing a hat-trick, as many strikers would in that situation.

Crooks told BBC Sport: “Two goals in quick succession by Timo Werner should have put the lid on Southampton’s visit to Stamford Bridge.

“Manager Frank Lampard has really got to do something about his defence. It’s a joke. Chelsea can’t continue leaking goals like this. They’ve conceded nine in five games.

“What a shame because they have scored 13. However, what really impressed me about their attacking play was Werner. The German is quick, has good feet and is unselfish.

“I’ve seen players go looking for hat-tricks when they have already scored two goals and Werner could have done the same. Instead, he laid the ball on a plate for Kai Havertz to score. That’s how partnerships are made.”
