Chelsea manager Frank Lampard was impressed by attacker Timo Werner following his performance at the weekend in the Premier League.

The Blues threw away a lead in stoppage time to draw 3-3 at home to Southampton in the league and it was a disappointing way to resume after the international break.

Despite dropping two points in the league fixture, Werner was a massive positive with his eye-catching display at Stamford Bridge.

The Germany international was deployed in a more central role by the manager and that helped him score twice to net his first goals in the Premier League, plus assists teammate Kai Havertz for his goal.

With Christian Pulisic now back from injury, it looks like Werner is going to find himself play centrally more often and his second goal came about after peeling off the centre-back to run in behind.


Lampard was extremely positive about Werner after his latest display and feels there is more to come from him:

“Yes, they are really good individual goals in terms of how he made them for himself. He looked sharp, our combination play in the first half was very sharp. For Timo to get those goals was great for him in terms of getting his confidence on his first Premier League goals. I am sure we will see a lot more from him,” Lampard said, as quoted by Football.London.

All eyes have been on Werner to break his goalscoring duck in the league, but now that’s been achieved fans could be about to see the best from him.

The 24-year-old speedster displayed his incredible movement in the final third during the Southampton fixture and his goals were from brilliant individual play, plus he’s now beginning to form some great combinations with players around him.

There is big expectation on him to be the talisman for the Blues when it comes to goalscoring this season and the signs are positive.
