The current campaign has seen Timo Werner won more penalties for Chelsea in the Premier League than any other player, the third penalty was won tonight at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
Timo Werner appears to have lost confidence in front as the striker for the Blues. A striker bought from German Bundesliga side Leipzig for €50m seems to cushion the effect of the goals drought with winning penalties.
It would not be unfair to say that Chelsea have got an icing on the cake when you consider the transfer fee paid for the service of Timo Werner.
So far, the German has scored just nine (9) goals in 30 appearances for the Blues this season, indeed, he needs to rediscover his scoring boots.
For the records, the pacy Werner joined Chelsea from Leipzig with 127 appearances and 78 goals for the Bundesliga side. But he’s been unable to replicate his goal-scoring form since joining Chelsea.
Werner hasn’t scored since November 7 in the Premier League – extending his run to 12 games – however, he is the penalty winning king!
After baiting Eric Dier into a ridiculous challenge at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, that was his third penalty won in the top flight this season. Jorginho rose to the occasion to convert the penalty to give Chelsea the only winning goal of the game.
No other player has one more. If you can’t score, at least give them something to worry about right?
