Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves believes Chelsea striker Timo Werner has been unfairly criticised.

Speaking on Optus Sport, Hargreaves said: “I think he’s done better than people say.

“He’s had a productive season in terms of six goals and eight assists and that’s just the Premier League.

“That’s pretty good for a player in their first season in the Premier League.”

“Werner gives you so much stuff in terms of pressing and Thomas Tuchel is huge on that and winning the ball,” Hargreaves added.

“He runs the channels, he can play off the left, he can play down the middle and he’s more versatile.”
