The striker put in a strong shift at Bramall Lane on Sunday as the Blues made it three straight wins under their new manager.

Timo Werner to pleased to have played a key role in Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Sheffield United but admits he wants to be scoring goals.

Werner bagged two assists as Chelsea moved into fifth place in the Premier League standings, just a point short of defending champions and second-placed Liverpool.

The Germany international set up Mason Mount’s opener in the first half before earning a penalty in the second one which Jorginho converted to seal the win after Antonio Rudiger had struck an own goal for the hosts.

While it was a bright performance from him, Werner is yet to end his long goal drought. He last found the back of the net in November during Chelsea’s previous meeting with Sheffield United.

“Overall a good win for us, difficult against a high defending Sheffield United and proud that we continue our last wins,” the former RB Leipzig man told Sky Sports.

“For myself, again there was no goal but it is good to see I can help the team with other things.

“I am happy when we win and with two assists, but as a striker you want to score, it has been a long time and I have not had this long without in my career. The goals will come.”
