Timo Werner was a second half substitute against Fulham, and the German international made the news by missing a glittering chance when put one on one with the goalkeeper.

Werner’s missed chance has filled the media, with every fan and pundit wondering what has happened to the striker who scored 34 goals last season for RB Leipzig.

Former Chelsea left-back Wayne Bridge believes that it’s a thing of confidence for Werner. He further said that the striker needs to score easy goals in order to boost his confidence.

“He went through at the end there and you were just begging for him to put it in the back of the net,” he said on Sky Sports. “It’s what he was doing all the time, it’s a confidence thing.

“It’s not as easy, people think confidence doesn’t have that effect, but it can, depending on what type of player you are. For me, being a left-back, it’s probably easy because I wasn’t having chances on goal all the time and I’d probably have a steady game.

“But if he’s having chances and not putting them away, it’s going to carry on playing on his mind. That chance there, he’s broke from the halfway line and he’s got time to think about it.

“He’s got so much time, which is probably what he doesn’t need right now, he needs a chance to come to him, for him to snap at it and put it in.”
