REVEALED: Chelsea boss Tuchel steamed into Werner (in German) during Everton victory

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel steamed into Timo Werner - in German - during victory over Everton last night.

The Blues cruised to a 2-0 victory in the Premier League clash and were rarely troubled by their rivals for a Champions League spot on Monday night.

Yet Tuchel still felt the need to criticise members of his first team, including his German compatriot Timo Werner in the 26th minute while the scores were still goalless.

TV microphones picked up Tuchel berating the £53million summer signing in German on the touchline.

Reported translations claim he said: "Timo, how long are you staying on the left? You're playing on the right! The last 15 mins you've only been on the left! Don't you understand?"

Werner was a lively presence in the Blues attack throughout the game but despite getting into numerous goal scoring positions was constantly denied by smart stops from Toffees stopper Jordan Pickford

The forward departed as a substitute in the final minute making way for Christian Pulisic before being greeted by a warm handshake from Tuchel, suggesting his earlier rant was nothing more than a minor transgression.
