Timo Werner scored twice for Chelsea in the 3-3 draw with Southampton on Saturday, finally breaking his duck in the Premier League. The German looks to have finally hit some form, and Ian Wright is now predicting big things for the striker.
Timo Werner could become a “real problem” for opposition defences if Chelsea can get their attack to gel.
That is the opinion of legendary Arsenal striker Ian Wright.
Werner scored twice in the 3-3 draw with Southampton on Saturday, breaking his duck in the Premier League.
Meanwhile, Kai Havertz was also on the scoresheet for the first time in the league, with the German pair finally showing what they can do after criticism following a slow start.

Both Werner and Havertz arrived with a weight of expectation on their shoulders after being two of the brightest players in the Champions League.
And as they continue to adapt to life in England, Wright believes they can continue to be a real force for Frank Lampard’s side.
“Yeah, I think so,” he said on Match of the Day. “When you look at the way he’s played, he didn’t look too worried about not scoring.
“It’s the movement and the runs he’s making. You look at Werner, Mount and Havertz… something is happening between them.
“Once Chelsea can get it all going, I think they’re going to cause problems. I wasn’t worried about him [Werner] not getting goals.
“Once they get it going, they will be a real problem. They need to cut out the mistakes because going forward they look really dangerous.”

Meanwhile, fellow pundit Alan Shearer added of Chelsea’s performance against Southampton: “There’s been too many individual errors.
“Once Southampton got the belief, they were in the game. They got further up the pitch and then there was that error from Zouma and the goalkeeper.
“Frank must have been a nervous wreck every time the ball went near the defence. Southampton deserved a point.”
