Timo Werner may have been on the winning side for RB Leipzig away to Hoffenheim this evening but the striker who appears Chelsea bound did not win over many of the social media critics having missed a very easy chance late in the first.
Julian Nagelsmann’s team ran out 2-0 winners to strengthen their grip on a Champions League place but it should have been much more if it were not for sustained profligacy throughout.
Despite Werner’s uncharacteristic miss when through one on one he produced an industrious performance, tirelessly pressing and regularly feeding his team-mates.
The 24-year-old is expected to join Chelsea in the coming weeks with Frank Lampard’s side agreed to activate his £53million release clause.
However, logistical issues caused by coronavirus have made it difficult for him to have a medical while some final details surrounding the transfer remain to be agreed.
Yet some fans are comparing him to former Blue Alvaro Morata while others are warning that he must not be used on the wing or else he will flop.
Here is a flavour of what the fans on Twitter made of his performance on Friday evening.
