It hasn’t been easy for 24-year-old Timo Werner, as well as Kai Havertz since they joined Chelsea.

The duo cost Chelsea over a £100m but have so far failed to hit the league running.

Werner started out in fine form, but then dropped confidence and couldn’t find the back of the net anymore. For Kai Havertz, he has barely impressed in a Blue shirt.

Meanwhile, former Bayer Leverkusen coach Tayfun Korkut has backed Timo to start scoring again soon enough, and he also thinks Havertz can play in multiple positions, but just needs to get his confidence back.

He told Sky Sports: “Timo just needs goals.

“He has never been a player to create something for himself. He needs players who can play him the ball. He can only do it with space and players to give him the right pass at the right moment. But when Timo does start to score, I am certain he will be fine.

“Kai is different. Kai needs more, even if he seems really cool. The position is not the major issue with Kai because he can play on the right or in the middle.

“The more important thing is that he needs someone to support him in this moment when he is struggling. People are expecting big things and it is not so easy. He needs confidence.”
