Timo Werner is yet to start a game since the arrival of Romelu Lukaku.

Lukaku joined Chelsea during the summer transfer window for a fee of £97.5m, in what is the club’s most expensive transfer business.

Lukaku’s arrival has seen Timo Werner struggle for game time, and the Belgian has been delivering the goals for Chelsea with three goals in three games now.

Lukaku scored a brace in his side’s 3-0 win over Aston Villa, and he took out time to hail Werner for helping him out in his second goal.

The coach asked before the game to play forward as fast as possible when we recover the ball,” Lukaku told Chelsea TV.

“Kova is a player with a lot of qualities, we have a lot of players in the midfield who have that forward pass, today he gave me a brilliant pass and I think the pass made the goal, I was really happy.

“I think I have to give a lot of credit for Timo because Timo created a lot of space for me.

“As soon as he created the space to run in behind the two defenders I had a lot of time, the touch was good and the finish was just clinical.”
