Timo Werner statistic shocks Chelsea fans after goal against Real Madrid

Timo Werner statistic shocks Chelsea fans after goal against Real Madrid

Werner opens the scoring in the semi

Timo Werner was in the right place at the right time for Chelsea, to give them a 1-0 lead against Real Madrid.

Kai Havertz’s dink over Thibaut Courtois went agonisingly close to going in, clipping the crossbar, but Werner was on hand to head in the rebound –  showing off the striking instincts which earned him a move to west London.

It was clear from his celebrations that Werner was in a state of raw relief and euphoria.

What has Tuchel said about Werner?

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has spoken about protecting the German international because of his fragile mental state, amid a disappointing first season at Stamford Bridge.

“I’m afraid you [might] lose him for the rest of the season. He looked so done in Madrid, not scoring goals,” he explained.

“He keeps doing very interesting things; the assist that he gave, keeping the ball and winning a free-kick at the edge of the box [in the Fulham win].

“He lacks confidence but he keeps on trying. He doesn’t give up, and I like the fact that he still tries everything.

“I think, against players like Varane, for example, you need somebody smaller who can disturb him and be fast.”

The surprising Werner stat

An interesting statistic surrounding Werner’s production has since emerged after his goal this evening.

The former RB Leipzig man is the first Chelsea player since Eden Hazard to rack up 10+ goals and 10+ assists in a single season for the club.

Granted, the hitman is 16 goal contributions behind the Belgian, who he is currently locked in action against in this evening’s Champions League semi-final.

However, with the most direct contributions of all of his teammates this season, when considering the expensive quality in Chelsea’s squad, Werner could possibly be less harsh on himself.
