Frank Lampard praises Chelsea star after Southampton draw
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has heaped praise on Timo Werner following his brace in the 3-3 Premier League draw against Southampton.
The Germany international won a couple of penalties during his first four games for the Blues, but midfielder Jorginho took both of them.
Hence, he was still awaiting his debut goal in the club's colours and he managed to end the same with a first half brace against the Saints.
Elsewhere, the former Leipzig man also assisted Kai Havertz for the third Blues goal and that capped off a brilliant individual performance.
Speaking after the game via Football.London, Lampard was delighted for the 24-year-old and believes there is plenty more to come from the German.
"Yes, they are really good individual goals in terms of how he made them for himself. He looked sharp, our combination play in the first half was very sharp," He told.
"For Timo to get those goals was great for him in terms of getting his confidence on his first Premier League goals. I am sure we will see a lot more from him."
Chelsea are currently placed sixth in the standings with eight points on the table. They will host Sevilla in the Champions League in midweek before facing Manchester United on the road in the Premier League next weekend.
