Timo Werner has shared an interesting story behind his goal celebration as Chelsea secured a crucial 1-0 win over top-four rivals West Ham United on Saturday.

For the 25-year-old, it was more than just a match-winning goal. It’s also his first since his goal against Newcastle United back in February.

A two-month wait is clearly something that a striker of Werner’s calibre is used to, and he celebrated by pointing at the Chelsea bench with a smile of relief on his face.

The celebration, apparently was a tribute to two Chelsea teammates; Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham.

“Before the game — it’s a little bit funny — Callum said to me that I would score today, and thirty seconds later, Tammy also said I’d score today,” he told Sky Sports in his post-match interview.

“Both said, if you score, point to [us].

“It was a funny situation and yeah, I’m very happy that I could point to them.”

Werner, who had five shots attempts in the game, could and should have scored more considering the chances he had.

“I think the second chance, I had to score,” Werner who seemed to be in a good mood admitted.

“But I think I have to come back slowly, with one goal is enough.

“[If] I had scored twice today, it might [have been] too much for the beginning. No, joking [laugh].

“Very happy that we win this game, very important win for us and the race for the top four.”
