Reasons Why Timo Werner Pointed At Tammy Abraham When Celebrating His Goal Against West Ham

Chelsea 1-0 defeat to West Ham saw them take a grip on fourth place in the premier league table. Timo Werner scored his first premier league goal since February on Saturday evening to steer his team to a vital win in their quest for a top four finish this season.

However, we saw both sides of Timo Werner in the game, and if ever a game summed up Werna's season at Chelsea, it was this one. He scored the only goal of the game couple of minutes before half time as he tapped home Ben Chilwell inviting cross, to give the blues a crucial advantage they needed, which they didn't let it slip. Werner got into some excellent positions in the first half but fluffed his lines until he score with a simple finish. Some minutes into the second half, he was the first to react Lukasz Fabianski parrying Mount shot his part, but he somehow managed to miss the target from six yard box with most of the goal at his mercy.

After Werner scored just some minutes before the break, he pointed at Chelsea dugout and was asked in post-match interview what the celebration was all about.

Werna said, "before the game, it was funny, Callum Hudson-Odoi said to me if i score today, then Tammy Abraham came over 30 seconds later, he said you will score today and when you do, point at me". "It was a funny situation but i am very happy to point at them" - He concluded. The Chelsea striker is an infectious character in his post-match interviews and he is also a popular figure of the Blues squad, he's had a real struggle in front of goal this season.Whether Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel can trust Werner to lead the line with such upcoming big games both home and abroad remain to be seen, but it was a goal and a fine performance that Timo desperately needed, as he looks to end the season on a high. Werna work rates in the team has never been in doubt but yesterday was his second premier league goal since mid-February. Chelsea splashed out £49.5m on Timo Werner from RB Leipzig last summer. The Blues on the other hand has found consistency under Tuchel, as shown by just two defeat since he arrived. The German tactician is the first Blues head coach to go ten away games unbeaten to start his reign.

Chelsea fans will hope that his striker will find some consistency to match that of his collective group of players. There are lots of controversy in the game as Fabian Balbuena was sent off after he catched Ben Chilwell leg with his stud when clearing the ball from their area.
