After starting life under their new manager with a draw against Wolves, victories over Burnley, Tottenham and Sheffield United have followed.

Chelsea had won just two of their previous eight matches with former manager in charge before Frank Lampard was sacked. This left them sitting at the ninth place in the table.

Werner said;

“If we go back three or four matches, when the manager was not yet here, we were nine or ten points behind the top four.

“We watched the table and were like, ‘oh, it might not be so good at the end of the season’.

“Now we are really good, back in shape, and I think if we keep going like this we can put more pressure on the other teams.

However, Chelsea & Timo Werner are ready to overtake any of the four teams currently at the top to finish this 2020/21 Premier League campaign at top four.

When asked to describe the situation, Lampard told Sky Sports:

“Very challenging, not just for me but the medical team and sports science because some players are asymptomatic and come back training within a few days and reach their top level, but then there are some players who take longer.

“They report tiredness and fatigue and because everything is so new, we don’t have anything to gauge it by. We don’t have the right methods to know how to get players back to a level as quickly as possible.

“It’s not just us but a problem for the league. This year is different and will be different until we get to the other side.”
