‘Superb’, ‘Been good’: Some Chelsea fans praise 24-year-old’s display vs Sheffield United – originally posted on Sportslens.com
A selection of Chelsea fans on Twitter have praised the performance of Timo Werner during the club’s 2-1 Premier League win over Sheffield United.
The Germany international went the 14th league game without finding the back of the net, but he was hugely influential towards the goals scored by the Blues.
The 24-year-old linked up impressively with Ben Chilwell on the left flank and he produced a brilliant cut-back for Mason Mount to open the scoring before the break.
Antonio Rudiger gifted the Blades with the equaliser after an own goal where he passed the ball beyond the advancing Edouard Mendy, but the Blues quickly retained the lead.
Werner launched a counter-attack for the Blues just a minute later and he earned the penalty after Aaron Ramsdale fouled him in the box.
Initially, the referee ruled out any foul from Ramsdale, but the decision was overruled after he watched the replay on the pitch-side monitor.
Werner has not scored in the Premier League since the reverse fixture against Sheffield nearly three months ago, but he has shown signs of returning to form.
He won the penalty which led to the Blues’ goal in the 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur and made a similar impact against Chris Wilder’s men.
Some of the Blues faithful were impressed with the forward’s display and here are few reactions on Twitter.
