Thomas Tuchel is convinced goals will come for Timo Werner after his impressive display on Sunday helped Chelsea beat Sheffield United 2-1.

Tuchel claims he is ‘very happy’ with Werner’s man-of-the-match performance at Bramall Lane – having assisted Mason Mount for the opener before winning a penalty in the 58th minute to close out the game.

Tuchel claims Werner’s ‘mental and physical’ presence in the game was a ‘big step forward’ and that he will return to his goalscoring ways if he continues to play ‘decisively’.

Werner has gone 14 Premier League games without a goal, but Chelsea manager Tuchel is convinced goals will come for the 24-year-old.

Speaking after Chelsea’s victory, Tuchel said: ‘When he plays like this we are very happy. It is a big step forward. He won a penalty against Tottenham and again today so we are very happy.

‘I could see the Tottenham game gave him a boost in confidence and he was unlucky in that game not to score, but he worked incredibly hard and was disciplined.

‘I feel he is stronger and stronger every day and he is more and more free. Today I could really feel him on the pitch, absolutely in the game mentally and physically.

‘And he was decisive, and this is the most important because if he can continue like this the goals will come. I’m very sure.’

Werner had to be substituted after 75 minutes, but Tuchel allayed any fears of a major problem.

‘It’s a dead leg, it is not serious. It is something that is very painful in the moment, but right now I don’t have any worries,’ said the Blues boss.
