Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has suggested Timo Werner is being hampered by his Chelsea teammates’ inability to spot his runs, with the forward looking ‘fed up’ as a result.
Werner struggled in his debut season at Chelsea, scoring just six Premier League goals and his struggles have continued this season with the 25 year old scoring just once in seven Premier League games.
During a Q&A on Twitter on Thursday, Fabregas was asked about his thoughts on the German striker and replied: “He makes so many good runs but sometimes they either don’t see him or don’t play the pass. He looks fed up sometimes.”
Werner scored his first Premier League goal since February in the win over Southampton, with Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel saying afterwards: “We are all relieved, him and me and the whole club.
“Every time he scores we have the feeling there is a VAR decision to take it away from him, there have been a lot of very narrow decisions. I remember one against Liverpool that was super close.
“He has to keep on going and a lot of things to improve. We’re happy and relieved that he scored. It was very, very important goal for us to secure the win. And on the other hand he was there when he needed to be.”
