Frank Lampard’s summer signings are yet to make the desired impact so far, with Timo Werner and Kai Havertz mostly the ones struggling for form.

Werner has only scored 8 goals in 38 games, which is a far cry from his goal outburst in the German Bundesliga.

Meanwhile, former Premier League striker Clinton Morrison, said that it’s time for Werner to be dropped to the bench for a first time, after a poor display against Porto.

“Chelsea have got other attacking options – it just depends on how long Tuchel wants to stick with Timo Werner,” Morrison told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“Listen, Werner is not a bad player. You don’t become a bad player overnight. It’s just at the moment, he’s getting into positions and not being clinical.

“Maybe he needs a bit of time out of the team and he can make an impact coming off the bench.”
