Chelsea manager Lampard 'very pleased' with Werner start

Timo Werner has earned praise from Frank Lampard after Sunday's loss to Liverpool.

The German, signed from RB Leipzig this past summer, earned Chelsea a penalty in the 2-0 defeat.

Lampard told the club's website: "I'm very pleased with his start. We brought him to the club for the attributes that we're seeing – speed, individual moments and we will see goals from him.

"In the second half it was difficult for him but he came up with a moment that could have got us back into the game. I'm delighted with him and we're going to see a lot more."
