Timo Werner: We can beat Liverpool

Timo Werner believes Chelsea have the talent in their squad to beat Premier League champions, Liverpool. 

The Blues got off to a perfect start in the Premier League with a 3-1 win against Brighton on Monday night and will host the Reds in their first home tie of the 2020/21 season. 

Werner and fellow new signing Kai Havertz made their debuts during the match at AMEX Stadium, even though the latter struggled for long periods. 

The former RB Leipzig striker was lively through the match, and even won the penalty that Jorginho converted for the opening goal. 

Speaking on Wednesday, the striker was full of confidence, ahead of the showdown. 

"I am looking forward to the game because you have a lot of good teams and with Liverpool, one of the best teams in the world," Werner responded during an interview with the club's official website.

"They won the league last year and they have the same team as last year, so they will be as strong as last year. So it will be a really good challenge for us to see how far we are,"

"We have some good but calm and nice players. We can do well with this team in the next few months and the next few years.

"We will improve game by game but now we have to play on Sunday and we try to win the game. We are playing against a strong team and they have such good players, not only Virgil van Dijk, the whole defending part of Liverpool are very good. They conceded the least goals in the league and it is a great team in every position.

"But we also have great players and we have the quality to beat them. It will be an interesting game,"

Liverpool was one of the clubs Werner was linked with before joining the Blues, but he added he was happy to have made the decision. 

The Reds won both matches against the Blues last season, including a second leg 5-3 win at Anfield in July as they were crowned champions.
