Timo Werner has been enduring quite a tough time at Chelsea, with the striker missing many good chances to score.
However, the Germany international has been involved in 24 goals this season for the Blues, 11 of which he netted himself.
In Chelsea’s recent 2-0 win over Fulham, Werner assisted one of Kai Havertz’ two goals. However, he also missed a big chance which came via a Hakim Ziyech pass.
Unfortunately for the 25-year-old, Cottagers’ goalkeeper Alphonse Areola was equal to the effort and got down low to save.
Werner, having fallen to the ground as he struck the ball, pounded the pitch in frustration.
But Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta and vice-captain Jorginho, both of whom were on the Stamford Bridge sideline warming up, were quick to offer encouragement to the forward.
Azpilicueta shouted “good, Timo!” while both he and the Italian midfielder, as they had also done minutes earlier, applauded the efforts of Werner.
