Chelsea striker Timo Werner was a constant threat throughout Sunday’s 3-1 win over Luton, but failed to find the net despite being presented with a number of opportunities and squandered a late penalty which was saved by Simon Sluga.

The German international has struggled in front of goal, scoring just once in his last 17 games for club and country.

Premier League legendary strikers Ian Wright and Alan Shearer have given advice to Werner following his struggle in front of goal against Luton.

“That’s the problem when you take it like that and try to bend it in there and catch it like that it goes into the keeper,” Wright told the BBC, analysing Werner’s penalty technique.

“You have to keep getting in there, saying I’ll take that penalty you have to show that confidence and you’ve got to try and convert it.”

Shearer added: “You’ve got to get on the training ground and starting firing those balls in from five yards, 10 yards.

“Even without a goalkeeper in there just to build your confidence up there, every single day.

“You have to admire him because he’s the one who gets fouled and you have to admire him for getting up and wanting to take the penalty.”
