Despite making a host of new signings this summer, Chelsea started the season without two key and important attacking players.
Both Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech have yet to get their seasons started for Chelsea, Ziyech hasn’t even kicked a competitive ball for them yet.
But both players are now fit again and in-line to be included in Frank Lampard’s squad this Saturday and beyond.
As well as this being excellent news for us adding two more creative players to our starting 11, one other major plus point is that it will surely now see Timo Werner move back to his more natural central striker role, a role that he plays so much better in rather than being out on the flank.
He is far from poor on the wing, he does a very good job. But you can’t help notice how little involved he is in the game over all, and he fails to make a real impact out there.
Playing behind the likes of Kai Havertz and Ziyech with their vision to put a ball over the top, Werner is going to have a field day getting in behind the last man running onto these passes. He also likes to drop deep and pick the ball up centrally, this can be effective against a low block.
Werner out wide is a great backup option to have, but that is exactly what it should stay, very much as a backup option.
