Chelsea striker Timo Werner had an opportunity to end his poor run in goal when Chelsea were awarded a penalty after he was brought down in the Luton Town box late in the game.

The former Leipzig star saw his spot-kick saved by Luton Town goalkeeper Simon Sluga and cut a frustrated figure as referee David Coote blew his whistle to signal full-time.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists he has no concerns about Werner’s late penalty miss against Luton Town.

Lampard told beIN Sport: “He’s in a moment now where it’s not happening for him and maybe that penalty is the ultimate, where it’s not quite happening for you that you have to fight your way out of it.

“I’m not concerned about the penalty in the slightest. I’d have loved him to have scored it but I saw a lot of positives in his own performance.

“There will be a time when he puts in penalties and not thinking about it. At the moment he’s probably thinking a lot about it and that’s just football but he’ll be fine.”
