Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has assured that new striker Timo Werner will come good for Chelsea at the end.

The German international who set the Bundesliga on fire with his goals last season, has struggled to replicate same success with Chelsea since sealing a move during the summer.

Speaking about Werner ahead of playing Fulham, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has insisted that the new striker will come good at the end. According to the Chelsea boss, Liverpool’s new signings were given time to adapt to Jurgen Klopp’s system before they became a quality side, and insists that Werner and his other signings must also be given time.

“It is going slightly unspoken that a lot of players who come into this league, at clubs like Chelsea where there is a lot of competition for places, are given time to come in and come out of the team, and feel their way,” Lampard said.

“Players that have come into the Liverpool team in recent years have been given time in those early stages to feel how the team plays. Clearly with Timo we didn’t have that opportunity because of some injuries in certain positions, and because we bought Timo and others to make an impact in our team straightaway.

“So everybody has to be patient with the idea that we will maximise Timo’s talents in this team, and that is a two-way street, with his work and our work as a group. It will happen but of course it can take time.”
