‘Looks fed up’: Cesc Fabregas has noticed Chelsea player who's sometimes frustrated in games

Cesc Fabregas has noticed that Chelsea player Timo Werner sometimes “looks fed up” during games.

25-year-old Blues forward Werner always appears to be under the microscope for whatever he does, as many feel he’s not lived up to expectation since a move to London last year.

The German speedster did help win the Champions League during his debut season, but he’s got a showreel of clear missed chances to go along with that.

Monaco midfielder Fabregas, 34, is a massive favourite with Chelsea supporters after his successful spell as a player at Stamford Bridge. 

He’s clearly still got a close eye on his former club, and he claims that Werner’s body language suggests he’s sometimes frustrated with a lack of service. 

“He makes so many good runs but sometimes they either don’t see him or don’t play the pass. Looks fed up sometimes,” Fabregas said.

Werner should feel love from Chelsea fans

In fairness, Fabregas is fairly accurate with his comments. 

Werner is very much an emotional player on the pitch and you can notice he wears his heart on his sleeve. 

It’s superb to see a hungry attitude where he’s desperate to succeed, but perhaps a calmer head is needed around the final third when it comes to finishing. 

There are times his runs are overlooked by teammates, something he wouldn’t have had a problem with if he was playing with prime Fabregas. However, he’s still playing in a creative team and has been guilty of wasting opportunities himself.

Blues supporters definitely haven’t given up on Werner, so he needs to keep working away and hopefully his inconsistency in front of goal turns.

He still has a lot to offer Tuchel’s squad. Another ex-Chelsea player, Olivier Giroud, recently hailed Werner’s importance at Stamford Bridge.
