Chelsea striker Werner proud of winning assist for FA Cup semi triumph: Two best teams in England faced off

Chelsea striker Timo Werner was delighted after their FA Cup semifinal triumph over Manchester City.

Chelsea won 1-0 thanks to Hakim Ziyech's winner.

Werner said, "I think the two best teams in England at the moment played against each other. It was a 50-50 game. We won because we made the counter-attacks and got one goal. In the end we defended very well, like in the games before. I think we can say the best team won.

"In these types of games it's very important to have a good tactic, but in the end it's the individual class that decides the game. That's why we won the game. Both teams have very good tactics because they have very good managers. We had the individual quality today.

"It's a great season if we win a title. We're not finished yet. We have to play the semi-final in the Champions League and final here. We keep going and that's the way we can win a title.

"It would be great to have fans here for the final. It's a very, very beautiful stadium. I had the chance to play in front of 90,000 here with the national team. Hopefully there will be a lot of people in the stadium.

"I've had more assists than goals, which is unusual in the last year for me. As long as it helps the team it's fine. It was good that I got the ball right for Hakim [Ziyech]."
