Why Timo Werner Is At The Center Of Attention At Chelsea Amidst Lukaku's Injury

Timo Werner is gradually becoming the star player at Chelsea following his recent break into Thomas Tuchel's plans. Thomas Tuchel, who benched Timo Werner for Lukaku in four EPL games of this season, has now started featuring the German international to the extent that he is becoming the most talked about Chelsea player at the moment.

He is presently at the center of attention for Chelsea, as the German international scored one of the decisive goals for Chelsea in the game against Southampton before the international break. Let us take a look at the reasons why Werner is at the center of attention at Chelsea presently.

1. His recent performances; Werner has been outstanding lately as he has scored some important goals for Chelsea. The goal he scored against Southampton has redeemed the faith of Chelsea fans in him.

Timo Werner is not only doing well for Chelsea alone, but he is also doing well for his National team. Werner seems to have found his rhythm for the National team, as he has scored four goals in his last six matches for Germany.

2. The recent form of Lukaku; Werner would not have been given a chance against Southampton if Lukaku was banging in the goals before that game. The goal drought of Lukaku in the recent weeks has made Werner the center of attention instead of Lukaku. With the current performance of Werner, he may end up outshining Lukaku.

3. The injury of Lukaku from the international break; Lukaku will not be featuring for Chelsea any time soon because of the injury he sustained when he was on International duty for Belgium. The injury means that Werner is the only striker that could be used in place of Lukaku.

4. The inconsistency of the Chelsea's attackers. Chelsea's attackers like Kai Havertz, Mason Mount and Hakim Ziyech has brought Werner into the plans of Thomas Tuchel. Thomas Tuchel was not ready to feature Werner with Lukaku, but the need for more goals brought Werner into the plans, and now he is at the center of attention.
