Ian Wright slams 'lazy' Chelsea star

Ian Wright has blasted Timo Werner of carrying out ‘lazy work’ notwithstanding Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City.

Thomas Tuchel’s men came from behind to secure all three points and hold City’s title celebration in the process.

The Cityzens took the lead in the first half through Raheem Sterling, before Sergi Aguero was given a golden opportunity to double the lead from the spot.

However, the Aguero tried a panenka that was comfortably collected by Edouard Mendy, handing the visitors a route back into the game.

And after the break, they duly profited, with Hakim Ziyech scoring an equalizer before Marcos Alonso netted a last-minute winner.

It could have been easier for The Blues, however, after Werner saw two goals correctly denied for being offside.

Those are the latest instances of an increasing problem for the German, who has found himself caught off on many occasions in recent weeks.

He also thought he had opened the scoring against Real Madrid in midweek, only for replays to show he was always offside.


And Arsenal goalscoring legend Ian Wright has insinuated that his lack of movement shows laziness to his game that is impacting his overall numbers.

Following his £47.5million move last summer, Werner has faced some struggles in front of goal, despite netting 12 goals in all competitions.

But Wright feels if he can sharpen up his runs and remain onside more often, he could be even better.

“I think Timo Werner is having a good season,” he said on BBC’s Match of the Day. “Coming to Chelsea with that pressure of scoring goals and then missing chances.

“You need to look at the runs he makes. Here he needs to get back onside. He doesn’t get on side.

“He’s got so much space. For me that’s just lazy, it’s lazy work. He’s running straight offside.

“ Once he sorts that out, he will get more chances, then he will need to be more clinical.”

However, his manager Tuchel had no such concerns with the Werner who has become a routine starter since he succeeded Frank Lampard in January.

“In the last week he’s really adapted well to the situations,” the Blues boss said following the dramatic Etihad victory.

“The way he works he’s relentless. He really wants it and I am very happy with his performance today.”

Asked if the former RB Leipzig striker needed to add more composure to his game, Tuchel added: “Yes, but it’s easier said than done. He was working like a dog.

“He was really, really working hard, it was so important and he gave them a hard time with his runs.

“Once he had chances, he had them exhausted. No complaints today.”
