Schwarzer: “Werner’s place in the Chelsea team under threat”

Timo Werner could lose his place in the Chelsea Starting XI should Pulisic and Ziyech become fully fit; according to Former Chelsea Goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer.

The German has already scored eight goals this season but has failed to find the target in his last nine games drawing criticism from some quarters.

Schwarzer thinks three Chelsea players are fighting for Werner’s place in the team and the German could be the one to miss out if he doesn’t up his game.

“If he’s contributing by doing a lot of work in the game, helping the team be successful, getting in the right areas, helping with assists, then I can understand why he stuck with him.

“Don’t forget as well that Frank has had to balance some injuries whether it is Pulisic, Ziyech in and out of the side.

“If we had a fully fit Pulisic and Ziyech, it may be a different situation for Timo Werner. He may find himself on the outside.

“I think it is only a matter of time. Add Hudson-Odoi to that mix, he has struggled with injuries. Timo Werner is the only one out of those four that has been fit all the time.”
