Timo Werner is Chelsea’s most prolific player since his transfer as Romelu Lukaku fails and only Mason Mount has been more creative, as the German striker continues his resurgence despite defeat at Arsenal.

Timo Werner continued his resurgence at Chelsea despite losing 4-2 to Arsenal.

The German striker was the only shining light for Thomas Tuchel, whose Blues put on a dismal display at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Having seemingly struggled for much of his Chelsea career since joining for £47.5million in 2020, Werner scored his fourth goal in as many games with a deflected effort from range in the loss.

And aside from his recent goalscoring form, stats suggest the 26-year-old hasn’t performed so badly over the past two years.

In fact, no Chelsea player has scored more than Werner’s 23 goals in all competitions since the start of last season – and the German has spent plenty of time on the bench.

Meanwhile, only Mason Mount has provided more assists than Werner during this period.

Of course, Werner at the top of the table is also a testament to Chelsea’s lack of a prolific goalscorer, with Jorginho becoming their top scorer in the Premier League last season with seven penalties.

Romelu Lukaku, re-signed for £98.5m last summer, was bought to fix that problem – but his campaign continues to go from bad to worse.

The Belgian, starting for the first time in two months against the Gunners, failed to affect the game and there were boos when Kai Havertz replaced him on the hour mark.

Lukaku remains without a top goal in 2022 and questions persist over his future at the club.
