'National treasure': Some Chelsea in hysterics at what Werner did in the stands during the Norwich win

Chelsea supporters on social media fell even deeper in love with Timo Werner after witnessing his comedic antics whilst the Norwich game was going on.

Werner had to sit in the stands and watch on as his teammates smashed seven past the pallid team wearing yellow and green.

The German suffered a hamstring strain against Malmo last Wednesday, meaning he joined Romelu Lukaku on the treatment table.

His first match as a spectator couldn’t have been any more entertaining.

A showering of goals, Mason Mount’s hattrick, penalty saves and retakes, defenders getting in on the action once again, plus a Norwich red card.

But evidently, this was not enough to keep Werner fully engaged in the match.

Sucker for a sweet

Chelsea’s camera sspotted the 25-year-old being handed an orange sweetie by a member of the coaching staff.

Clearly, this particular colour did not please the speedy forward, who rejected the offering and asked for a different flavour.

This trouble with the tasty treats had Blues fans falling off their chairs with laughter.

Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:

Timo’s tasteless tally

Moments such as the sweet showing in the Stamford Bridge crowd have earned Werner cult hero status amongst the Chelsea faithful.

Often inadvertently hilarious, the former RB Leipzig attacker is certainly a good character for the changing room.

If only his scoring form could match his comedy value, however.

Signed as a striker who bagged 34 goals in the season before he joined the Champions League holders, Werner hasn’t yet reproduced anything close to those numbers.

He managed 12 across all competitions last season and is on two for the current term.

Being picky with confectionary is one thing, but being fussy in the final third is entirely different.
