Timo Werner is confident he will start finding the back of the net regularly soon and told Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel to keep ‘screaming’ at him on the touchline.
Werner has only scored one goal since Tuchel’s arrival at Stamford Bridge and only five Premier League goals in total in his first season in English football.
Despite suffering to maintain his lethal scoring from from his time with Red Bull Leipzig, Werner is confident his best is still to come.
And he thinks Tuchel screaming at him from the touchline will give him an extra boost as he looks to rediscover his best form. ‘I can talk to him very easily,’
Werner told the BBC of Tuchel ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Liverpool.
‘When he screams on the pitch, no problem for me. I need types of managers who scream at me. It gives me more power.’ Werner wants Tuchel to keep shouting at him from the touchline.
He added: ‘You can always learn more from the bad situations. I learned to trust in myself, to give everything on the pitch, not only think about goals and fight for the team. ‘Now I hope this period is gone and I score a few more goals until the end of the season. ‘A lot of good strikers come to the Premier League and take one year to settle down and adapt.
‘I think my form is going up and getting better and better. Maybe this year is not the year of goal scoring for Timo but at the end I will reflect on the season.
‘I have learned a lot. I know exactly the teams we play against, how they play.’ Chelsea will rise above West Ham into the top-four with a draw against Liverpool on Thursday, while Jurgen Klopp’s side can leapfrog both with all three points at Anfield.
