Chelsea forward Timo Werner admits Chelsea ‘were a bit lucky’ in the 3-1 win over Southampton on Saturday, thanks to the red card shown to Saints captain James Ward-Prowse in the second half.

“I was very happy to score and help the team,” said Werner.

“In the first half it was the story of my whole Chelsea career in one game a little bit. It was obviously not so clear because it took the referee a while to make his decision. Maybe 50/50. We have to accept it, I had to accept it, and in the end I was happy I could score again and we won the game.

“It was a very important win after losing the last two. It was a very tough game for us because Southampton did very well.

“We were a bit lucky they conceded the red card. It opened up a lot of space for us. They made it very hard to create chances, but overall we were the better team.”
