Former Chelsea left-back Wayne Bridge has compared Timo Werner to Chelsea legend Didier Drogba.

According to Bridge, it took Drogba awhile to get going at Chelsea but he got there at the end. Bridge expects same from Werner.

“I think luck is definitely a factor in Werner’s season,” Bridge told BettingExpert.com.

“His attitude is brilliant, the way he’s worked for the team means he has played well. I look back at Drogba’s start at Chelsea and he didn’t hit the ground running and he got there in the end, so I think Werner will get there.

“He gives defenders nightmares, he’s still a very good player and when something clicks his confidence and attacking instinct will come back and he’ll be finding the back of the net.

“That will come and he has been a little bit unlucky with his attitude it will click in the end.”

Drogba scored just 10 league goals in his debut season at Chelsea but would go onto become a club legend, scoring 157 goals in 341 appearances.
