Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has urged Chelsea striker Timo Werner to trust his instincts more and stop overthinking chances.

Werner arrived from RB Leipzig last summer for £53million to much fanfare but has endured a mixed season in front of goal after a number of glaring misses.

His latest miss was against Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

“Are we happy when he misses a chance like he did in the last game? No,” Tuchel said in his pre-match press conference before the clash with Fulham.

“Do we wish for more goals? Yes. Does he wish for more goals? Yes.

“It is not about quality. It is about confidence and momentum. It is about trusting his instinct more and not overthinking it.

“It is easier said than done. I never scored a goal in my career. If I did it was like birthday and Christmas on the same day.

“He should keep his head up. This is what he does, this is what he used to do.

“What is the worst case scenario when the next chance comes? That he misses the chance. Billions of people never have a chance to take. So take the next chance.”
