Timo Werner finally ended his 14-game Premier League goal drought with a goal against Newcastle.

Werner also provided the assist for Olivier Giroud to score the opening goal against the Magpies, and it was nice to see him return to scoring form.

Werner was often criticised for missing too many chances and for going on a long goal drought, but Arsenal hero Perry Groves has now revealed that he admired Werner even when he was not banging in the goals.

Groves believes Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel can unlock Werner and turn him back into the scoring machine Chelsea paid £47.3m for.

“I like Timo Werner,” the former Arsenal man told talkSPORT.

“He’s been playing in different positions but he wants to play at centre-forward, and what I like about him is he never gives up.

“Even when he misses chances, he’s always making the runs and always getting in the right positions. He scored a goal and made the first goal too tonight, and it was no more than he deserved.

“I think under Tuchel, he could turn Werner into the player he was at RB Leipzig and goes back to a striker who gets 25 goals a season.”
