Former Tottenham Hotspur boss Tim Sherwood has claimed Chelsea striker Timo Werner isn’t ready for the Premier League.

“He [Werner] is missing a lot of chances. He gets in behind with his pace and runs away from players but he needs one to go in,” Sherwood told Premier League productions.

“The chances are coming but he’s not taking them. I don’t think he’s ready for the Premier League at the moment.

“I think he will be, I think he’s going to be an excellent player but I think if Tammy Abraham had the same opportunities as Timo Werner has had this season, Chelsea would already be nailed on in the Champions League.

“I think he’s missed too many chances.

“If I have one criticism of Tuchel, I think he’s discarded Tammy Abraham far too early. Timo’s had a lot of opportunities but he hasn’t shown it yet.”
