Chelsea striker Timo Werner missed several good goalscoring chances before he provided the assist for Tammy Abraham’s goal in Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle United on Saturday.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright warned Werner about his wastefulness in front of goal against Newcastle United.

Wright warned Chelsea cannot afford to be so ‘wasteful’ in front of goal if the Blues hope to challenge for the Premier League title this season

Reflecting on Chelsea’s performance, Wright told the BBC: “It was very comfortable for Chelsea right from the start.

“It could’ve been too comfortable there and like Frank said they missed chances and they need to be a lot more ruthless if they are going to go on and get into that top four, or really challenge simply because it could have been a lot easier than it was.

“You can go to a place like Newcastle and if you are that wasteful they can get you and come back and maybe nick one.

“I think today I thought Tammy was a lot better with his movement and got his goal in the end and Timo Werner he was kind of wasteful with the kind of chances that we know he normally will take. But other than that it could’ve been a lot more comfortable.”
