Frank Lampard insists that after his DEKATHA match without a win against West Ham, he is “not concerned” about Timo Werner’s drought target for Chelsea-and a blue boss believes that the £ 53 million strikers still “scares teams.
After the German stretched his goal drought to nine games in his 3-0 victory against West Ham, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard threw his support behind fouled striker Timo Werner.
In a £ 53 million deal with the reputation of being one of Europe’s most feared forwards, the 24-year-old arrived at Stamford Bridge this summer, but the club has yet to see the best of him so far. Just four Premier League goals in 14 games were scored.
He was moved to the left side by Werner’s lack of form in front of the net, with Lampard favoring Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham in the final games as his central striker. By taking part in help and promising places, the former RB Leipzig man has shown consistency.
The lack of form on target by Timo Werner continued Chelsea’s 3-0 victory over West Ham.
Despite going to the ninth match without scoring for the blues, Frank Lampard defended the German. Many expected Werner to surpass the top-scoring charts in England after scoring 34 goals from 45 games last season, but Lampard immediately praised his screens and backed him up to quickly hit the net.
‘I don’t worry,’ he said after the Stamford Bridge game.
“Every striker wants to score goals, it’s what they eventually judge, and that’s why, because of the level of goals he’s scored in recent years, Fear has been a great achievement for us. He’s a player in a new league and we have to give him time to settle down, but he regularly gets places, scares teams, and gives them trouble. Right now, it’s not entirely for him, but the moment that changes, then we’ll certainly see the aspirations of Timo Werner.”
The 24-year-old Lampard maintains that he will soon take form and claims he is “scaring teams”
“This is the time in which Timo is. It’s unfortunate, but he holds the roles, which will be a race for him when you enter.”
