With the advent of the video assistant referee, foul play is much more easier to spot and that has very likely led to the inflated number of penalties awarded to teams so far this season.
The Blues' penalty record so far is almost perfect. They have scored 5 out of 6 of their penalties in the Champions League which ranks them second, just behind Barcelona who have already been knocked out by Mauricio Pochettino's Paris Saint-Germain.
With Chelsea just on the verge of getting into their first Champions League semi-final in years, a penalty could be just what they need and Werner could deliver in that regard.
