Timo Werner was in fine form against Southampton, as the German international got his first Premier League goal for Chelsea, and got a brace in the game and also assisted Kai Havertz for Chelsea’s third goal.

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl knows Werner from their time at RB Leipzig, and he said before the game that his side must be wary of the 24-year-old.

After the 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge, where we saw the best of Chelsea’s attack and the worst of Chelsea’s defence, Hasenhuttl admitted that Chelsea’s attack can kill a team’s defence, as he hailed the speed of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.

“I knew the moment would come that he scored his first goal in the Premier League. I hoped it would not be against us,” Hasenhuttl said after the match.

“When you give him space, it’s hard to defend against him. The first goal we made it too easy for him.

“It’s tough to defend against him. When you are not tight on Timo and Kai Havertz they will kill you.

“But I am really happy that Timo is in England and playing in the Premier League. He’s fantastic for the fans, but it’s good we took a point as otherwise I wouldn’t be so happy for him.”
