CHELSEA: How Timo Werner's Biggest Personality Trait Shined Through Against Southampton

Despite being a very average finisher of the ball for a striker of his calibre, German superstar Timo Werner is one of the most loved players among the Chelsea fanbase.

Timo Werner is a striker who can score one in five chances but he can be relied upon heavily to help in the build-up play with his runs, drives and positioning which is why he is a very dangerous opponent to have regardless of his poor finishing ability.

His countless amount of runs to create space for his teammates are something that won't be counted in his statistics but play a vital role in generating goalscoring chances. An example is a run he made to open up space for Mason Mount to play the key pass which sent Kai Havertz through on goal in the Champions League final.

Timo Werner also brings about many other invaluable personality traits like commitment, passion, dedication, courage, determination and a first-team mantra but his biggest personality trait is his "Perseverance".

Against Southampton FC, Timo Werner created a lot of huge problems for the Saints defence through his tireless running down the channels, linkup plays with Romelu Lukaku and other teammates as well as pouncing on a rapid counter-attacking chance.

Then VAR cancelled a very debatable headed goal from Timo Werner for a foul right before half-time. If this happened to some other players, there would likely be a drop of the head down the shoulders and frustration which would affect their overall performance.

But Timo Werner is not that type of person and his biggest personality trait which is his perseverance shined through. The German kept himself positive and didn't look like a player who had a goal disallowed. He kept making his runs and linkup play and he was rewarded with a goal as he showed a sharp presence and composure to slot in Cesar Azpilicueta's cross from close range.

If Timo Werner can keep us this kind of performance and continue to improve on his finishing, he could find himself in Thomas Tuchel's starting line-up often.
