Chelsea striker Timo Werner has admitted that his goal drought is starting to get to him – despite fashioning two goals as the Blues overcame Sheffield United away from home.
However, the overriding emotion was pleasure at the victory – and that also goes for Werner, though the former RB Leipzig man admitted that it was tinged with frustration.
The 24-year-old has not scored since November, when the Blues last faced the men from the Steel City.
“Overall a good win for us, difficult against a high defending Sheffield United and proud that we continue our last wins,” he told Sky Sports .
“For myself, again there was no goal but it is good to see I can help the team with other things.
"I am happy when we win and with two assists, but as a striker you want to score, it has been a long time and I have not had this long without in my career. The goals will come.”
He brushed off the suggestion that he should have been allowed to take a penalty after winning it.
"In the future, maybe I can take a penalty but at this moment, I need to score some normal goals before taking a penalty,” he said.
"It was a clear penalty and I was shocked it was not given straight away. The VAR helps the referee."
Meanwhile, Werner is full of praise for compatriot Tuche, who has overseen three wins and a draw since taking charge of the Stamford Bridge outfit, propelling them back into the Champions League reckoning in the process.
