Timo Werner didn’t get a goal today, but there’s no denying he was the most impressive Chelsea performer.
His superb darting run won the penalty that gave his team the lead, his constant movement kept the Brighton defenders worried, and he even tracked back to make a tackle.
It wasn’t easy for him either – as he pointed out after the game, “I’ve never played against 3 defenders like this… so tall, so big… massive defenders!”
Well he came through it OK in the end, and by and large left them trailing in his wake.
You can see his hilarious response in the clip here:
🗣"I have never played against 3 defenders like this so tall, so big massive defenders!" 😭
