The arrival of Romelu Lukaku at Chelsea this season has limited the playing time of Chelsea striker Timo Werner.

Werner finally scored his first Premier League goal of the season in the 3-1 victory over Southampton and has praised Germany head coach Hansi Flick for his help and guidance after a difficult start to the season at Chelsea.

“It’s about how you can behave in certain situations on the pitch, for example when you get the ball open or with your back to the goal,” Werner told reporters in Germany as per Metro.

“In the situation I was in before the last international break, in which, even if things have gotten better recently, I may still be in a little, it is immensely important when you come here and have a coach that shows you from the first minute: ‘I don’t think you’re bad, I don’t think you are blind. If we work together, it can be good.’

“It’s about telling yourself that you scored your goal in every game and not that you missed a chance in one game.

“But driving yourself crazy about it is the wrong approach.”
