“In the last week he’s really adapted well to the situations,” Tuchel told BBC Sport.

“The way he works he’s relentless. He really wants it and I am very happy with his performance today.”

Asked in a separate interview with Sky Sports if Werner needs to add patience to his game, Tuchel replied: “Yeah, but it’s easier said than done because he was working like a dog.

“He was really, really working hard up front. It was so important, he gave them a hard time with all these runs.

“Once he had chances he had them pretty exhausted, so no complaints.”
