Tony Cascarino has criticised Chelsea duo Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner for their performance against Manchester City.
According to Cascarino, Lukaku and Werner should learn from Brentford duo Ivan Toney and Bryan Mbeumo, whose partnership disrupted Liverpool’s defence in Brentford’s 3-3 draw against Liverpool.
Cascarino told TalkSPORT: “There was one thing that really stood out for me, they (Brentford) went with two up front and Chelsea went with two upfront.
“But you can’t play with two upfront like Chelsea did where there is such a big difference between Werner and Lukaku.
“Mbeumo and Ivan Toney were together, they played as a partnership. Where Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku, there was always too much distance between them.
“That’s not a partnership, that’s being isolated.
“There was an incident in the second half where Timo Werner broke down the right. He breaks away and you’re thinking ‘yeah, an attack.’
“He’s ended up so isolated and it’s ended up being a throw in the far corner, but he had no option because Romelu Lukaku was 40 yards away on the other side.
“They didn’t look like they had much telepathy between them, and that showed in the game.”
Can Lukaku and Werner really work?
