The former Blues player believes only one Chelsea man is more likely to cause Guardiola issue on his defense line
Timo Werner assisted in these two games despite having a hard luck finding goals in the Premier League.
But his UEFA Champions League run hasn’t been that bad as he have found goals for the Blues in the UCL.
With the last coming as a finish off header against Real Madrid when Kai Havertz set up a master class chip that only succeeded in meeting the bar before finding Timo Werner’s head.
‘Going against Werner is all wrong for the way Pep [Guardiola, Man City manager] plays, no system is impenetrable,’ Joe Cole said to Goal.
‘Pep plays a certain way and if you get it right, making the first and second pass with a player as explosive and intelligent as Timo with his runs, you will get space at some point.
‘For me, Werner will probably start and he is the player to hurt them.
‘We’ve seen great players come into this country and struggle. That along with it being Covid year, which has been difficult for everyone, but there’s been positive signs in the last few weeks with how he affects the game.
‘I think he is going to be a good player for Chelsea but I just think he needs perseverance.’
