– Timo Werner has received the backing from Frank Lampard despite missing a gilt-edge chance against Fulham
– The Chelsea boss believes his No.11 will bounce back in confidence and insisted he was delighted with his pace
– The Blues ended their three-game winning run in their Premier League following their 1-0 win over Fulham
Timo Werner missed a sitter and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has advised the German striker to keep working on the training pitch to get those kinds of chances converted.
The 24-year-old has not scored for Chelsea in the last 12 matches until the FA Cup win over League Two side Morecambe.
The Germany international was brought on in the second half in the west London derby against Fulham but failed to find the back of the net.
During the closing stages of the match, Werner was given a through ball by mason Mount as he was one-on-one with Alphone Areola but his shot went off-target.
However, Lampard believes the £47.5million summer signing will get his confidence back and insisted he was “delighted” with Werner’s incisive running.
Lampard was asked whether Werner is lacking confidence, Lampard told Sky Sports quoted by Mirror:
“I don’t know.
“I think it’s normal, I think if you don’t score as regularly as you want, he scored last week in the FA Cup.
“But those are goals I’ve seen him score many a time. His bread and butter is going through like that and scoring and it happens.
“He has to just keep working, it’s the only way out of it. We’ve all been there if you’re a goalscorer or a striker.
“Everyone will say the same, get back on the training pitch, [be] pleased you’re getting in there, go again.
“It’ll go in for him because he’s high quality. I was delighted to see him to get through [on goal].
“He likes to be in those positions, we’re getting him in positions there when he came on and he will score.”
