Chelsea new signing Timo Werner suffered a likely ‘dead leg’ injury in Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Brighton at the Amex last night.

Despite not being on the scoresheet, the German had a great game, and Chelsea manager Frank Lampard was pleased with what he saw from the debutant.

“I love the way he pops up in different areas,” Lampard told

“He’s not a frontman that attaches to centre-backs so much. He can start a little deeper but when he goes, he goes and we saw that with the burst of pace for the penalty.

“He has a real hunger to score goals and be ruthless in those areas and I think we saw a lot of signs from Timo tonight of what he’s going to bring.”

On Werner’s injury, the boss said.

“He [Werner] took a knock when we won the penalty, which we hope is a dead leg. I’d like to think if it is that then we have a bit of time to get him back for Liverpool.”

Chelsea’s next match is against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
