The pressure is gradually mounting for Chelsea’s summer signing Timo Werner, who has only managed 8 goals in 21 games for Chelsea so far this season.

Werner has struggled for form, scoring just twice in his last nine Premier League appearances, and has now gone nine games without finding the net for Chelsea.

With Frank Lampard facing injury crisis for his wide players, Werner has had to feature on the left flank, which could probably be a reason why he is not scoring enough goals.

Meanwhile, Werner’s former teammate Yussuf Poulsen had warned that the German won’t take life to the Premier League quickly as he said that the 24-year-old would need time to adjust to his new teammates.

“I think Timo will be a great striker in the Premier League over the next few years,” Poulsen told Sport-Informations-Dienst (SID) back in August.

“Of course, he has to get to know his team-mates and the league first; you can’t show all your qualities right away.

“But that will come in time.”

The pressure is now mounting for Werner, but to his defence, the German international has proven to be a very good signing and despite his lack of goals in recent weeks, he has been important to the team so far.

Werner tends to work hard in games and his attacking contribution cannot be looked down on, as he still tends to create chances for his teammates.
