Timo Werner Should Play As A Supporting Striker For Chelsea In 3-5-2 Formation

Timo Werner seems to have regained the form that convinced Chelsea to sign him from RB Leipzig.

His performance against Southampton was outstanding, he was lively throughout the match. The German international had a goal that was canceled by the referee in the first half of the match. He was at the right position in the opponent's box to score a decisive goal for Chelsea in the second half.

Thomas Tuchel's team tends to play better when Timo Werner is on the field, while the striker may miss several goal-scoring opportunities, his movement in the opponent's half creates space for his teammates to dominate a game.

Thomas Tuchel may need to alter the 3-4-2-1 formation that brought team success last season, opposing teams are working hard to find a way to outplay the system. The performance of Chelsea in the game against Manchester City and Juventus should be a wake-up call to the manager of the team.

If a team can mark Romelu Lukaku out of a game, it becomes tough for Chelsea to outscore an opposing side using the 3-4-2-1 formation.

Thomas Tuchel has tried to introduce new formations to the team, this could help the Blues to become unpredictable in their bid to win silverware in the ongoing season.

The 3-5-2 formation could be a suitable alternative to the Blues, Romelu Lukaku is comfortable with this formation. He could build a prolific partnership with Timo Werner as the attacking frontline of Chelsea.

Timo Werner has the skills to play as the supporting striker. He has the pace to stretch the backline of the opposing team and his movement in the opponent's box is impressive.

Having two strikers at the front could help the Blues to be more decisive at the front of goals.
