Timo Werner put up a fine display against West Ham, and the Chelsea striker was one of the most dangerous players on the pitch at the London Stadium.

Whenever Werner got on the ball he always seemed dangerous, and it was the 24-year-old German who scored the only goal of the game.

Meanwhile, Werner’s game was spoilt by a very poor miss when a rebound fell kindly in his front. Werner had an empty goal to tap into, but just played the ball wide.

Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has now warned Werner that if he doesn’t get his acts right, Chelsea would sign another top striker in the summer.

“He can play in multiple positions, he has some really good moments and then he has some moments where you think the quality looks like it isn’t there,” Hargreaves told Premier League Productions.

“He looks like he’s short on confidence, that you can see and the numbers suggest that, 31 appearances, only six goals. In Germany it was one a game at least.

“His confidence looks low and then he’s making decisions you wouldn’t see from him normally.

“It’s a really important five games left for him to finish the season because if he keeps missing some of these chances, Chelsea are going to go get another big hitter.

“Tammy Abraham is their top scorer in all competitions this season, there’s four others on six goals in the Premier League but Tammy’s their top and he barely plays right now.

“If Chelsea are going to take it to the next level, they’re going to need somebody that gets big numbers.”
