Frank Lampard praises Timo Werner after telling contribution on Tyneside

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard singled out Timo Werner for special praise after the German starred in his side’s 2-0 win over Newcastle at St James’ Park. Werner’s second-half surge over the halfway line set up his side’s second goal for Tammy Abraham after an early Federico Fernandez own goal had set the Blues on their way to a fifth straight win. Lampard said: “He (Werner) had a couple of chances and some times it doesn’t go in for you, but I thought he was a real threat for us throughout. “You need players of that quality to win games and the pace he travels with the ball is something special. He was so unselfish and you rely on those players who are top-class.”
