EPL: Chelsea’s Timo Werner issues strong warning to Liverpool, Man City
Chelsea striker, Timo Werner, has warned Liverpool and Manchester City that the Blues are ready to challenge them for the Premier League title this season.
Liverpool won the Premier League title last season ahead of second-place Man City, while Chelsea finished in the fourth position behind third-place Manchester United on the log.
But Werner, who joined Chelsea from RB Leipzig this summer, believes Frank Lampard’s men have worked a lot on tactical things, strength and fitness, to make sure they compete with Liverpool and City for the English top-flight league title.
“The work with the manager recently has been really good,” the 24-year-old told Chelsea’s official website.
“He has been showing and explaining to the whole team, not just me, what we can do on the pitch and how to improve on last season.
“He has been great to work with, and he has been discussing his plans for the future, and how we want to battle with teams like Man City and Liverpool.
“I think Chelsea is a big club and with this team that we have, I think we can reach a new level.
“We have worked a lot on tactical things, as well as our strength and fitness, to make sure we are ready for the start of the season.”
Werner scored his first goal for Chelsea a few days ago in their 1-1 friendly draw with Brighton.
