Chelsea striker Timo Werner has revealed he’s motivated to fight for his place in the team after dropping down the pecking order following the arrival of Romelu Lukaku.

“The last few weeks have been difficult,” he said. “After many years, I was suddenly a little behind and had to fight my way again.

“A career always goes up and down, never steadily upwards, so you have to learn to deal with it.

“I have to bite into it again and that challenges me.”
