Kurt Zouma believes Chelsea newcomer Timo Werner can be the man to help the Blues catch up with Liverpool this season after his impressive debut against Brighton.
Werner was being linked with a move to Anfield during the transfer window, however, eventually, he ended up making a move to Stamford Bridge. He made his Premier League debut against Brighton on Monday. Werner made an impressive impact as he won a penalty after 20 minutes. The Blues finished the game with a 3-1 win with Jorginho, Zouma and Reece James all scoring for Chelsea.
Now the Blues are preparing to face the Reds on Sunday, September 20.
Speaking ahead of the game, Zouma said: “They have a great front three, but we also have our weapons.
“We can hurt them. It will be a great game to watch. Last season Liverpool completely dominated the season, they had a great run of wins.
“They hardly lost. But this is another year. Everybody starts from zero. We will see what we can do.”
Zouma added on Werner: “He’s a top scorer. He’s been scoring goals for fun in the German league. That’s why he has come here, to show himself in the Premier League.
“I think he can do it. He has the ability and he’s so quick.
“The players that came here are going to bring something new to the team. Kai started great, defensively he helped us a lot.
“They obviously need to get used to the shape. As soon as everyone is fully fit they will bring a lot of things to the team.
“It’s very exciting. But on the pitch will tell us what we can do. We need to work hard in training. But we have a great team.
“We don’t need to get too excited. We just need to be ready and keep the confidence high.”
