Werner sends warning to Liverpool and acknowledges game means more than most

Timo Werner has acknowledged Chelsea's clash with Liverpool means more than most games – by insisting he will not miss out due to injury.

Werner suffered a knock as he won the penalty for Chelsea's opening goal in a 3-1 win over Brighton on Monday night.

"I think the last part we missed today but for me and also the rest of the team I think we'll get a lot of chances we can create in the Premier League and I'm happy to be here.

"I think we can do much better than we did today.

"At the end we won the game and lots of players in our team haven't played any games this season.

"We are maybe not as strong as we could be, but in the next few weeks we will get very fit and very confident when we win games like we did with this one today.
