‘Turbo Timo is going to terrify Premier League defences’ – Chelsea fans sent exciting message

Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton is backing ‘Turbo Timo’ Werner to terrorise Premier League defences.

Werner was brought to the club at the beginning of the transfer window after netting a stunning 28-goals in the Bundesliga last season, with Chelsea managing to nail down his services for just £45 million.

His impressive strike rate at RB Leipzig, and at international level, suggests that goals will flow for the 24-year-old once he is off the mark, and Sutton couldnt help but hide his excitement about Werner after his impressive display against Brighton on Monday night.

Sutton believes Werner will prove to be a star, with a man who knows all about the pressures of leading the line for Chelsea on the back of a high-profile transfer telling the Daily Mail: “Werner was caught offside more than any other player in Europe’s elite leagues last season.

“He was flagged 43 times for RB Leipzig and on Monday night we saw him caught twice inside the opening seven minutes for Chelsea. But when he times it right, those runs behind are terrifying for defenders and goalkeepers.

“The 24-year-old was given the nickname ‘Turbo Timo’ earlier in his career for a very good reason — because he is rapid.

“When Brighton gave the ball away in the 21st minute and Jorginho played a pass through, it looked slightly ahead of Werner. But Chelsea’s new forward was onto it like a flash.

“Then, in first-half stoppage time, with few other options, Werner burst away from Adam Webster and forced Ryan into a save. Webster was left trailing his opponent by five yards but he won’t be the last Premier League defender to succumb to the attacker’s pace.

“A number of his 28 league goals for Leipzig in 2019-20 involved him running in behind. That is what Frank Lampard wants from him, too.

“I know what it’s like to go to Chelsea, with that pressure on you to score goals. You can get stick if it doesn’t go according to plan. Werner couldn’t get on the scoresheet on Monday night but he did make his mark. He showed how hard he is willing to work for this team.”

Werner is a special player and the fact that he is in the Premier League is massive for the English game.
