“Top, top player” – Some Chelsea fans react to Timo Werner’s electric first half

Football fans are always obsessed with novelty, so it was only natural that Kai Havertz became the centre of attention tonight, despite the fact that Timo Werner hadn’t played a competitive game for Chelsea.

But without question it’s the striker who has stolen the show on their mutual debut. His electric pace has got him in behind a couple of times, and got the Blues their goal as he was knocked down by Mat Ryan.

The fans haven’t forgotten him entirely though, and it was clear from their reaction on social media that they are absolutely enchanted by their deadly new forward.

One fan called him a “top, top player”, and on the evidence of those 45 minutes, there’s no arguments to be had really.
