Chelsea legend Joe Cole has urged Chelsea boss Frank Lampard to take Timo Werner out of the starting XI for awhile and bring him back in.
According to Cole, Werner needs to go away and work on his finishing.
Werner has now gone eight games without a goal for Chelsea in all competitions and, with Lampard overloaded with attacking options, Cole believes it may be time to give the German forward a rest.
“I think Werner, when he comes in off that left, he’s very, very dangerous,” Cole said on Amazon Prime Video after Chelsea’s latest defeat.
“I just think he just needs to brush up on his finishing, but he’s a young striker and he will do that.
“So I’ve got no doubts he’ll be a top player for Chelsea but there’s options now and he [Lampard] needs to move it around.
“Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi to come back in, freshen it up at some point. Take Werner out, bring him back in.
“It’s a marathon to win a title usually, and certainly this year. You’ve got to use your whole squad. So Werner maybe come out, bring the other lads back in.”
