Timo Werner may have discovered goals difficult to find in his debut season at Chelsea, however manager Thomas Tuchel is in any case enchanted to see the forward working constant for his club.
The German's take of 12 strikes in all competitions during 2020-21 is fundamentally down from the 34 he ravaged for RB Leipzig during his last season in the Bundesliga. As per his countryman, however, his commitment can't exclusively be estimated on how frequently he has placed the ball in the net. "Somewhat recently he's truly adjusted well to the circumstances," Tuchel said of Werner to BBC Sport following Chelsea's 2-1 win of Manchester City in the Premier League. "The manner in which he works he's determined. He truly needs it and I am extremely content with his exhibition today. He added to Sky Sports: "Werner was working extremely hard, he was truly buckling down. He gave them trouble with his runs." Chelsea are one of only a handful few sides to have the better of City this season, beating Pep Guardiola's men in the FA Cup semi-final to end their fourfold expectations and now in the league, an outcome which implied the pioneers couldn't secure the Premier League crown at the Etihad Stadium.
Hakim Ziyech and Marcos Alonso both hit for the guests to upset Raheem Sterling's opener, leaving Tuchel pleased with their rebound. "I think the subsequent half was an incredible reaction to the most recent five minutes of the first half where we nearly lost everything," he said to the BBC. To me it was a reasonable 0-0 half yet unexpectedly we did one conclusive mix-up and perhaps the match gets far off at half-time. "With consistently we acquired certainty and quality. We improved and better. It was an intense fight and once we got the equalizer we attacked constantly. [The winning goal] was a gigantic award. "This reveals to us we can depend on our wellness which is an awesome inclination toward the finish of a season. We can likewise depend in our team spirit, we continue onward. This group never stops, they would prefer not to lose, they need it that bad." The Blues presently trust they can record a third successive success over City in the forthcoming Champions League final, which will be played on May 29.
