Chelsea managed to materialize a 2-0 victory against Porto last night but it wasn’t the desired performance for Timo Werner
Former Crystal Palace man, Clinton Morrison believes it’s time to give Timo Werner a break from the Chelsea squad after Chelsea’s Porto match.
With just 8 goals in 38 EPL and UCL appearances for Blues, Timo Werner has struggled to settle since arriving Stamford Bridge.
It appears the German isn’t getting any better as he looks less confident match after match.
As the other games, Werner continued his goal drought spell last night as he was later on subbed on at the 65th minute alongside country man, Kai Havertz.
Speaking on the former Leipzig man, Clinton Morrison told BBC; ‘Chelsea have got other attacking options – it just depends on how long Tuchel wants to stick with Timo Werner.

‘Listen, Werner is not a bad player. You don’t become a bad player overnight. It’s just at the moment, he’s getting into positions and not being clinical.
‘Maybe he needs a bit of time out of the team and he can make an impact coming off the bench.’
Last night saw a Chelsea side bouncing back from their Saturday disastrous loss to West Bromwich Albion.
Mason Mount booked the first goal and was later on backed by Ben Chilwell who netted a relaxing extension.
‘It was a very good, professional performance from Chelsea,’ the Pundit added.
‘A lot of people were questioning how they would respond after that defeat by West Brom – and they responded excellently.
‘Thomas Tuchel made changes but the players that came in have done the job. Two fantastic goals and even late in the game, they were still trying to get forward and score that second goal.
‘I think Chelsea are done now and this second leg should be comfortable as well.’
