Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has commended Timo Werner’s ‘brilliant’ performance during Chelsea’s 2-1 win against Sheffield United in the English Premier League, (EPL) affirming it was a tough match.

The Blues saw off a stubborn Blades side thanks to Mason Mount’s strike and Jorginho’s penalty either side of half time.

A 43rd minute strike from close range by Mason Mount and a second-half penalty from Jorginho helped Tuchel’s men secure another three points move up to fifth place.

But it was Werner who stole the show, despite going another game without a goal in the league – now 14 games without a league goal.

Tuchel was pleased with his display and insists the goals will soon come. “It was a brilliant run for the first goal and it was great decision making for the second goal to go around the goalkeeper,” started Tuchel, as quoted.

“So he got us the decisive penalty again like in Tottenham, it is clear that the situation in Tottenham gave him a confidence boost and he was a bit unlucky with his shot and chances against them.

“It was good defending from their defenders but he worked incredibly hard and disciplined against the ball. It gave him a boost, I feel him stronger and stronger every day. Today he was more free and I could really feel him on the pitch.

“He was absolutely in the game mentally and physically and he was decisive. This is the most important thing because if he can continue like this. The goals will come, for sure.”

Werner was taken off in the second-half late on for N’Golo Kante and was seen having his thigh strapped up. He confirmed post-match that he had a dead leg and the substitution was precautionary.
