The Blues continued their fine run of form under their new manager, solidifying their place in the top four with a victory over one of their main rivals for Champions League qualification.
Chelsea recorded the ninth clean sheet of Tuchel’s reign and secured three points thanks to Ben Godfrey’s own goal and a second-half penalty from Jorginho.
It was, however, another largely frustrating night for £52million signing Werner who squandered several presentable opportunities to increase Chelsea’s advantage.
His profligacy wasn’t Tuchel’s main gripe, however, with Werner inexplicably featuring prominently on the right wing when he had been deployed on the opposite flank by his manager.
With the scores still level, pitchside microphones caught Tuchel saying, ‘Timo, how long are you staying on the left? You’re playing on the right! The last 15 mins you’ve only been on the left! Don’t you understand?’
Werner, who has scored just once in his last 12 matches in all competitions recently opened up on his issues in front of goal but claimed he was happy to be screamed at by his own manager and insisted that sort of coaching provides him with additional motivation.
‘When he screams on the pitch, no problem for me. I need types of managers who scream at me. It gives me more power.’
