The creation of sports content, in general, gives me great delight, and I have a great deal of affection for Chelsea football club as a long-time die-hard supporter. I am a terrific storyteller with a creative mind, and my mantra is to make the most of whatever is presented in front of me while maintaining a high level of professionalism and enthusiasm throughout the process.

Frank Lampard said he had several chats with Timo Werner and they both agreed that the left winger role suits the Germany international. But what would it mean for Christian Pulisic? Werner is a bit of a conundrum for the Chelsea manager initially. The 24-year-old is not an out-and-out striker you would associate with the No.9 role while he is certainly not a conventional winger either. He usually played in a pair with either Yussuf Poulsen or Patrik Schick in his RB Leipzig days but, as we know, Lampard doesn’t use a two-man up front system. Lampard has experimented with…

Chelsea were a very injury-hit team last season, with a number of key players suffering long-term or regular injuries. One of which was Billy Gilmour, who pulled up with a knee-injury just as he was becoming a regular starter under Frank Lampard. His injury had been a long term one from before joining Chelsea, and he had always had to wear a strap on it. But it turned out to be a bit more serious than expected, and the young Scot needed surgery which kept him out for the rest of the season and the start of this one. But…

The German made no mistake, taking his tally for the season up to seven. By the sound of things, Werner…
