Arsenal legend Paul Merson isn’t still convinced with Chelsea forward Timo Werner.

Merson told Sky Sports: “One thing that’s still not quite right though, is the centre forward position.

“I watch Timo Werner and I just think there’s something missing still.

“There was an instance in the game against Man City where he did great to get in down the left-hand side of the penalty area and he just shoots. He shoots and he hits the side netting and it’s never going to go in in a million years. Why did you shoot there?

“His decision making is not great.

“Against Real Madrid he gets caught offside when he should never be offside. He’s got unbelievable pace, but he gets a bit lazy in his runs.

“He’s certainly not a lazy player, but he’s just got to take more care in making runs in behind. He runs offside too many times for me.”
