Timo Werner broke his 9 game goal drought for the Blues but the German was missing on spot kick duties. While speaking to the Chelsea website, he however explained the reason behind his decision not to take penalties last night.

Werner: “First of all because of my calf, some pain in my calf, I couldn’t go out [get subbed] because we made three substitutions. When you have fit players on the pitch, it’s better that they shoot than me today.”

Timo Werner also reflected on the game and the overall performance of both teams and expressed his satisfaction on the win.

Werner: “A goal opens the game very often. The first half both teams were a little passive, they don’t know what to do because there were a lot of changes from both teams.”

Werner: “But the second half when we scored the first goal, we had a lot of pressure after the goal. After this we lost a little bit of control.”

Werner: “Aston Villa then made it 1-1 but after this we showed a good reaction. We want to win the game in the 90 minutes, lucky we won the penalty shootout.”

The German forward did also express his delight on getting on the scoresheet in what he referred to as a good game for the team.

“[I’m feeling] very good. It’s good to be back on the scoresheet. It’s good that we keep on going our wins and that we are in the next round of the Carabao Cup. We are happy because of the game. It was a good game for us.”
