Agbonlahor: Chelsea striker Werner no Drogba

Former Aston Villa captain Gabby Asgbonlahor says Chelsea can't rely on Timo Werner.

Werner arrived for £53m last summer but under both Frank Lampard and Thomas Tuchel he hasn't shown much of the prolific RB Leipzig version of himself.

"I've tried to give him the benefit of the doubt as it's his first season, but the more I'm seeing of him he's making the wrong decision," Agbonlahor told talkSPORT.

"He picked the ball up, running at two defenders and takes a wild shot over the bar when it's best to make a pass and another run.

"He seems a bit too erratic and Chelsea, with their history with the likes of Didier Drogba and the strikers they've had in the past, they need to go out and buy a big, big striker who can score goals and turn up in the big games."
