New Chelsea striker Timo Werner has been unable to replicate his RB Leipzig form at Chelsea, after sealing a £47m move during the summer.

Following Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Sheffield United, Werner has now taken his tally to 14 Premier League games wihout a goal. Despite not scoring against Sheffield United, Werner got two assists, as he played a vital role in getting the three points for Chelsea.

Chelsea right-back Reece James has hailed the contribution of Werner and believes that his time will come for the goals as well.

“His time is coming,” Reece James said.

“He is working very hard and he was involved in two goals so it is not like he is not contributing. Two of his contributions helped get the win.”

Meanwhile, Werner has admitted that he was pleased with his involvement against Sheffield United and believes he can return to scoring the goals soon enough.

Werner said after the win over Sheffield: “Overall I think it’s a good win for us. It was very difficult, the whole game, against a very good high-defending Sheffield United and we are very proud that we win, continuing on from our last wins.

“For myself, again no goal, but it’s good to see that I can help the team with other things at the moment and I’ll keep going.”
