‘I Wonder How He Played 90 Minutes’ ‘It Hurts Watching Him Play’ Fans Lay Into Chelsea Star After Wolves Collapse

Chelsea let a 2-0 goal lead slip against Wolves on Saturday and, while there were problems defensively once again, the Blues were also wasteful at the other end of the pitch.

One player who has come in for a lot of criticism is Timo Werner. The German forward didn’t, by any means, have his worst game at the weekend, but his poor decision making and finishing have led many to vent their frustration at his shortcomings:

Werner was probably one of the liveliest players out on the pitch, forcing Jose Sa into a couple of good saves, whilst also having a goal chalked off for a foul on Romain Saiss.

However, this isn’t just about the game on Saturday. For a Β£47.5m signing, with an excellent goal record back in Germany, he just hasn’t produced the goods often enough.

Chelsea’s attack is full of players who can turn on the style for brief periods but they don’t perform consistently. It’s probably harsh to be picking on Werner specifically but you can’t blame fans for being disappointed with his lack of end product.
