Timo Werner's Brilliant Performance Reminds Chelsea of Their Loss

Timo Werner's recent performance for Leipzig is a testament to the skills and talents that Chelsea missed out on.

In a stunning display, the German forward scored his second goal of the match with an exceptional long-range strike while also assisting in the other goal during Leipzig's 3-2 win over Augsburg.

Chelsea's Missed Opportunity

Werner's time at Stamford Bridge was riddled with struggles in both confidence and goal-scoring form, leading to an early departure.

Despite his impressive performances in the Bundesliga, Chelsea paid a whopping £50 million for Werner's transfer in 2020, only to see him leave two seasons later with a meagre 23 goals and a host of mocking memes.

Now back in Leipzig, Werner has been in top form, scoring 14 goals for the season, with his latest strike being one to remember. His exquisite first touch from a hopeful ball forward by Kevin Kampl set the ball up perfectly for a stunning volley, which he hit with precision into the back of the net just outside of the box.

Werner's current goal tally of 14 is five more than Chelsea's top scorer Kai Havertz, who has only managed nine goals in all competitions this season.

The Void in Chelsea's Attack

Meanwhile, Chelsea's attacking woes were on full display as they lost 2-1 at home to Brighton.

Conor Gallagher's deflected opener provided a glimmer of hope for Frank Lampard's side, but they were outplayed by Brighton, who had 24 shots compared to Chelsea's eight.

Werner's latest performance for Leipzig only highlights the void that Chelsea must fill in their attack.
