Chelsea striker Timo Werner finally found the back of the net after scoring in Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle United on Monday night.

The German international had not scored in the Premier League since his goal against Sheffield United in November, with his goal drought lasting for 1,000 minutes.

Speaking after his goal against Newcastle United, Werner told Sky Sports: “The first half was really good from us. We played some really good football and I’m happy that I’ve scored, finally.

“As a striker, you always want to score. The last month I’ve not been happy not scoring but in the end it’s a team sport. I’ve been providing assists with penalties, but I’m very glad that I’ve scored today.

“For a striker, it’s worse when you don’t get chances but in the past I’ve been getting chances and missing them. The important thing is to keep going and the goals will come like it did today.

“I thought it would be just my luck [when VAR was called]. But in the end I’m really happy.”
