CHELSEA new boy Timo Werner had fans in hysterics after admitting he has never played against such “massive defenders” as Brighton’s.
The German forward made his debut for the Blues as they swept aside the Seagulls 3-1 on the South Coast last night.
New Chelsea captain Jorginho opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the first half, which was won by Werner, to give them the advantage at the break.
Leandro Trossard levelled it after the restart but a stunner from Reece James restored the advantage for Frank Lampard’s side.
The West London outfit then sealed all three points courtesy of Kurt Zouma’s deflected volley.
