Chelsea summer signing Timo Werner has struggled to bang in the goals for Chelsea most recently, and has been on a barren run in the last 12 games.

Werner has struggled to shine from the left flank, with Frank Lampard recently revealing that he’d deploy him through the middle in the coming games.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson disagrees with Lampard over Werner’s best position and doubts if the German will be able to perform well through the middle.

“I don’t know where Werner plays,” Merson told Sky Sports.

“I think Chelsea may have signed him to play as a striker, but that is not working, and if his best position is off the left, then Chelsea need a centre forward.

“No disrespect to Olivier Giroud or Tammy Abraham, but you are not going to win the Premier League with those as your front two.

“Giroud and Abraham do great on their day, but they are not going to be in the top six Premier League goalscorers this season, or any season.

“How many teams have won the Premier League without having a player in the top six scorers?”
