Chelsea player, Timo Werner “Premier League is tougher than I Expected”.
Timo Werner admitted he is finding it tough to adapt to life in the Premier League, but is confident he will regain top form soon.
Werner has scored four times in 13 Premier League outings since linking up with Chelsea from German club RB Leipzig.
Werner says the price tag brings added pressure in a league he is still finding his feet in.
“It does matter how much you cost. It’s always a bit of pressure when you come to a new club,” Werner said. “But I think I can handle it very well. It’s not something new.
“The pressure is a little bit higher than the previous years but I think good footballers are the best under pressure and that’s my plan, I can do very well under pressure.
“The Premier League is a little bit different to my old league. It’s tougher than I thought. The contact here is harder than in Germany, it’s what I expected but not like this.”
