Chelsea new manager Thomas Tuchel who registered his first win with the London side against Burnley during the weekend courtesy of Marcus Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta goals has come out to back Timo Werner’s lack of scoring.
Thomas Tuchel Says Werner is Fine
According to Thomas Tuchel, he said out-of-form forward Timo Werner’s goal drought is “nothing special” and “happens to every striker in the world”.
Chelsea’s winning goals came from two defenders, the right-back and the left-back Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso. The extended Timo Werner’s barren run in the Premier League to 12 games.
Tuchel said: “As long as he has the impact and tries everything like he did today, we will support him.” The 24-years-old Germany striker registered three shots on target against the Clarets, but none of them seriously troubled the Nick Pope, Burnley goalkeeper.
Werner’s only goal in his past 17 Chelsea appearances came in a 4-0 FA Cup win against League Two side Morecambe earlier in January. Tuchel also said: “He’s totally into it, he gives everything, but every striker is sensitive and nothing helps them more than goals.” “If they miss goals for a certain amount of time, it’s the same for all of them.”
“Confidence is something that comes with good performances. As long as he lacks goals, he won’t be at 100 per cent.” “But it’s OK. He has to keep going until he may find a straightforward goal to bring out the last few per cent.”
The £53m summer signing from RB Leipzig has so far under-performed, but the new manager thinks otherwise.
