Timo Werner is a man who has already brought exciting moments to Chelsea fans since moving to Stamford Bridge from RB Leipzig.
In the game against Leeds United, he has now provided them with an error that will have fans and neutrals alike scratching their heads wondering how the heck he didn’t score.
It was the kind of situation in which it seemed more difficult for the German to miss than to get the ball into the back of the net, but Illan Meslier’s goal was not violated.
It’s been debated whether Olivier Giroud’s original effort would come in, but the Frenchman showed his fellow attacker how it’s done when he converted from a Reece James cross to the box later in the first half.
There is no question that Werner is a talented player, but the 24-year-old has been completely shocked with this effort.
Cheers from the stands that quickly turn into confused moans tell the whole story here – it’s lovely to have fans back in the stadiums.
