Timo Werner hasn’t fared well at Chelsea in recent weeks, and this sums up his luck at the moment.
After a slow start to life at Stamford Bridge, the German international appeared to be picking up his pace in mid-October with a streak of 10 goals in nine games for his club and national team.
But since suffering a 6-0 loss to Spain in November, his confidence seems to have faltered, and now he has been unable to score in 12 straight games for the Blues.
Despite that, Frank Lampard gave him a show of faith against Manchester City, chosen to lead the line ahead of fitter options Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud.
However, it didn’t quite go according to plan, as Werner failed to break into the scoreboard and Chelsea were beaten 3-1 on the day.
Things went from bad to worse for Werner in the 87th minute, when given the simple task of cornering, somehow managed to catch the corner flag and then limped away, leaving Mason Mount to take over.
Peter Drury and Andy Townsend looked absolutely baffled in the comment box, and they aren’t the only ones.
