Liverpool legend Graeme Souness isn’t convinced about Chelsea forward Timo Werner despite the German international providing an assist for Mason Mount’s goal and winning the penalty which Jorginho converted in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Sheffield United.

Souness claims Werner is too timid for the Premier League and believes Werner’s lack of form in front of goal played a role in Frank Lampard’s departure at Stamford Bridge.

“At no time does he look, so he doesn’t know Mason Mount is coming, so he gets lucky there,” Souness told Sky Sports when analysing Chelsea’s opening goal against Sheffield United.

“If you watch him at no time does he look to see Mason Mount coming into the middle, he’s just played it into an area.

“I think he’ll find our football difficult – he is finding it difficult.

“I think the aggression and intensity, I think he’s a little bit timid for our football.

“If he’s going to be success in our football that has to come. It’s alright saying, ‘he keeps missing chances, he’s getting there’. I look at him and I’m yet to be convinced.

“Chelsea is a team full of really good players, high technique, they get into the last third and attacking third time and time again, they need more than what he’s giving them.

“If he had done the business Frank would still be in a job.”
