It wasn’t a good night for Timo Werner against Arsenal, as the German didn’t seem to be at his best against a struggling Mikel Arteta side.
Werner’s early season shine has since dropped, and has now gone on a 10th consecutive game to not score a single goal.
This is now Werner’s worst dry spell in over 4 years: as the last time he experienced such was between march and September 2016, where he failed to score once in 12 games.
Timo Werner was subbed off during the half-time of the Arsenal game, having failed to find the net yet again.
Explaining why he took off Werner at half-time, he revealed that he wasn’t pleased with the German’s performance with and without the ball.
“The goals not going in is certainly something an attacking player gets judged on and I could have made more subs,” the Chelsea manager said, “but I felt I had to make subs in those two areas to inject energy.
“Timo today wasn’t giving us enough with or without the ball and some of it we have to give him time because it is a different league but also we have to get there quickly, so we’ll see about his tiredness.
“I will have a conversation with him but it was a decision I just felt I had to make. I had to make changes to try to change the cause of the match.”
