Chelsea defeated Everton 2-0 last time out in the Premier League, but Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel wasn’t too pleased with Timo Werner during the game.

During the game against Everton, Tuchel was heard berating Timo Werner on the touchline for ignoring a basic instruction over his positional play.

Callum Hudson-Odoi played as a left inside-forward, Kai Havertz as a false nine and Werner as a right inside-forward.

Tuchel was unhappy that Werner kept drifting over to the left – occupying the position Hudson-Odoi was playing.

Tuchel was heard shouting: “Timo, how long are you staying on the left? You’re playing on the right! The last fifteen minutes you’ve only been on the left! Don’t you understand?”


Tuchel has admitted that he watched the clip afterwards, revealing that he was sucked into the game but he wasn’t too aggressive on his countryman.

“People showed me (it),” he said. “There was no insult, it was not aggressive. It was very direct, yes… you should have seen me 10 years ago, it was double and triple. I was totally sucked into the match – sweating all over, attacking the fourth official all the time, attacking the referees, everybody on the bench. Nobody was safe. I calmed down a lot.”
