Though Timo Werner has netted eight goals in his first 17 Chelsea games in all competitions, the striker has been guilty of squandering multiple scoring opportunities.

The German international missed an open goal from one yard out in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Leeds United.

Ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League game against Krasnodar, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard dismissed any concerns over the forward’s recent struggles in front of goal.

“I’ve got no worries about Timo,” Lampard said.

“I think he’s come into this league, he’s made a big impact straight away. His speed, his direct nature, things he’s creating for the team, the fact he’s getting lots of chances, he makes lots of chances through his explosive nature and his eye to be in the right areas.

“And that I love. I’ve got no worries about him. Timo’s going to be a huge player for this club.

“He’s scored some goals already. Of course he’ll want to score more and he’s missed a couple but keep getting there and he’ll score those goals.

“So I just think it’s a small moment as all strikers have and I have no worries.”
