Werner reflects on Chelsea struggles after his goal against Aston Villa

Chelsea striker Timo Werner is hopeful he will be back on track after grabbing a goal against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup. 

Werner handed Chelsea the lead on Wednesday night, after heading in Reece James' cross before Cameron Archer leveled the scores.

Kepa Arrizabalaga pulled off a fine penalty save before Reece James delivered the winning spot-kick as the Blues prevailed 4-3 in the shoot-out at Stamford Bridge.

Werner admitted struggling at the start of the new campaign after a testing summer with Germany but now hopes to get back to his best.

“It’s good to be back on the scoresheet, good to score at Stamford Bridge and I’m happy that I’m back on the pitch,” said Werner.

“I think that the last few weeks were not very easy for me, but every goal, every assist brings me back on track, so it was good for me and also for the team.”

The Blues will now put their focus on the Premier League as they host Manchester City tomorrow.
