Legendary Arsenal striker and pundit Ian Wright has praised the impact of Chelsea striker Timo Werner in Chelsea’s 3-3 draw against Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

Werner scored two goals and set-up Kai Havertz for Chelsea’s third goals.

Ian Wright was full of praise for the 24-year-old German striker on BBC’s Match Of The Day.

“When I’ve watched him [Werner] he doesn’t look too fussed about the fact he hasn’t scored,” he said, as quoted by Dailystar.

“You saw him there talking about how he hadn’t scored in four, but it’s the movement and the runs he’s making. The fact that he, Mason Mount and Kai Havertz seem to have something happening, we can see it starting.

“Once Chelsea can get it all going, get the midfield to continue with the intensity that they have to put on these teams then I think they are going to cause problems.

“Like I said, I never worry about someone like him not getting his goals and in the end he sets up his teammate Kai Havertz.

“Once they get it going they are going to be a real problem, but they are going to have to cut out the mistakes because going forward they look really dangerous.”
