Timo Werner failed to impress in Chelsea’s goalless draw against Manchester United on Saturday. Since his move to Chelsea from RB Leipzig, Werner has failed to score in five of his six Premier League games for the club.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists he’s happy with Werner despite his performance against Manchester United.

Lampard said: “I am very happy with Timo. If you go back to the game before, he scored two goals and Kai Havertz scores a goal. I am least worried about the front end of the pitch with the players that we have there.

“It is normal that it will take some time for relationships – for when we have got to put the ball in behind, the ball into feet – clearly these things are going to take time to build.

“The reason we brought Timo and Kai into the club is to add to the quality we already have here. Hakim Ziyech is looking like he is getting close to starting a game with his fitness.

“I have no worries about that. The last bit didn’t happen for us today (against United). It is normal, that happens in football, but I am very happy with the players.”
