Chelsea forward Timo Werner has struggled for form since his move to Chelsea, scoring just eight goals from 23 appearances this season.

Many fans have criticised the German for his lack of goals for Chelsea but we should instead be blaming Chelsea boss Frank Lampard for Werner’s struggles.

Chelsea signed Werner from RB Leipzig after the German international scored 34 goals in 45 games and he has been expected to continue that form at Chelsea.

Werner was a prolific goalscorer at RB Leipzig because he was played as a striker but Lampard has mostly played the striker as a winger at Chelsea.

It’s shocking Lampard spent that much to sign a striker and then decide to play him as a winger.
