OPINION: How Timo Werner Has Improved as Seen from His Performances Against North Macedonia

As admirers of the Chelsea striker have seen, Timo Werner appears to be rediscovering his RB Leipzig self. In this article, aspects that have changed about him that have in turn contributed to him regaining his confidence will be discussed.

The German international seems to have shed his Leipzig scoring prowess in his first season at Stamford Bridge. He was missing a lot of obvious chances at the time, this is despite the fact that he was one of the club's hardest-working players last season.Many Chelsea supporters said that his struggles in front of goal were due to the supposed harsh VAR laws in England and the league's abundance of strong defenders, but looking at some of his performances since the season began, it is clear that he is recovering his former form.

This was particularly evident in Germany's final World Cup qualifying match against North Macedonia. Kai Harvert, a Chelsea teammate, scored the team's first goal, before Timo made it three with a brace later in the game.

The main objective of this piece is not to discuss his two goals; rather, it is to discuss the manner in which he scored the second goal on Monday night. He comfortably curled the ball into the top-right corner, a goal-scoring style that has been seen from him for quite some time.

Apart from his confidence, he appears to be selfish with the ball, which is one of the crucial attributes possessed by some of the world's most deadly strikers. We knew last season Werner should have sent the ball to a teammate running to grab his pass from the back, but the Chelsea forward decided to put the ball in the net himself.

Another aspect of his game that has improved is his positioning in order to create the best scoring opportunities, as evidenced by Chelsea's recent league game against Southampton and the Carabao Cup match against Aston Villa. In these two games, he scored two headers, one of which was deemed offside.

His second goal in the Southampton game also demonstrated how he is improving his positioning. Azpilicueta's cross was timely received, and he scored as a result. He should have passed the ball to Romelu Lukaku, who was standing nearby, but he chose to go for the goal himself.
