Timo Werner made a dream start to his Chelsea career by scoring inside four minutes in a friendly against Brighton and Hove Albion.
Bought from RB Leipzig in a deal worth a reported £47.5million, Werner combined with fellow new recruit Hakim Ziyech at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.
The ball fell kindly to the player who scored 28 times in 34 Bundesliga games last season, finishing second to Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski in the goal stakes.
Werner buried the chance, showing the clinical talent he looks set to bring to Frank Lampard’s team in the 2020-21 Premier League season.
Our early goal, courtesy of @TimoWerner, was cancelled out by a late Brighton penalty, so it ends in a draw. 🤝
An important run-out for a lot of the boys! 💪 pic.twitter.com/sNEMoXkkqo
