Ian Wright has warned Chelsea they can’t afford to be so ‘wasteful’ in entrance of objective in the event that they hope to problem for the Premier League title this season after Timo Werner was significantly culpable throughout Saturday’s snug 2-Zero win over Newcastle.
Frank Lampard’s aspect moved, briefly, to the highest of the desk after an early personal objective from Federico Fernandez and a second half clincher from Tammy Abraham sealed one other three factors.
Chelsea missed a number of alternatives to make life simpler for themselves at St James’ Park with Werner squandering a easy likelihood from eight yards out within the opening interval and failing to present Hakim Ziyech with a tap-in by misplacing a straightforward go after the break.
Reflecting on Chelsea’s efficiency, Wright advised the BBC: ‘It was very snug for Chelsea proper from the beginning.
‘It could’ve been too snug there and like Frank mentioned they missed probabilities they usually want to be much more ruthless if they’re going to go on and get into that high 4, or actually problem just because it may have been rather a lot simpler than it was.
‘You can go to a spot like Newcastle and if you’re that wasteful they’ll get you and are available again and possibly nick one.
‘I think today I thought Tammy was a lot better with his movement and got his goal in the end and Timo Werner he was kind of wasteful with the kind of chances that we know he normally will take. But other than that it could’ve been much more snug.’
Despite the misses, Werner linked up nicely with Abraham all through and the pair mixed beautifully for the England worldwide’s third objective in his final three Chelsea appearances.
On Werner’s greatest place, Wright added: I believe that fits Timo coming from there, coming from deep.
‘You saw with Tammy’s objective he went previous the defenders like they weren’t there, he set Tammy up and he completed nicely. He appears to play off a entrance man higher.’
