Timo Werner was the scapegoat in last week’s 1-1 draw with Real Madrid as Chelsea could only get a point away at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium.

Christian Pulisic scored the opener away in Spain, but Timo Werner could have gotten a goal much earlier when placed one on one with Thibaut Courtois.

Former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino has now urged the German to be at his best on Wednesday night, and warned that fingers will be pointed at him if he fails to deliver at Stamford Bridge tonight.

“Thomas Tuchel has been brilliant at getting his team to take an iron grip on matches, keeping the opposition out game after game, but he needs his attacking players to make the most of their chances,” Cascarino told The Times.

“Timo Werner has been producing some wonderful passes, and has been providing great movement and creativity, but he has to be more clinical in front of goal.

“The Germany forward is overthinking things when he has the chance to pull the trigger. If Chelsea get knocked out tonight and Werner has missed one or two good chances then the finger will be pointed at him.”
