Chelsea on course for the Champions League because Werner finally meets again …
The starting position of the game couldn’t have been more exciting: Chelsea (4th) and Westham (5th) both have 55 points in the table and both want to finish fourth in order to qualify directly for the Champions League. Timo Werner (25) of all people makes the big points clear – and Thomas Tuchel (47) also leaves Jürgen Klopp (53, 54 points) behind with this 1-0 win …
Chelsea have started the game well but can’t do much with the chances they have. West Ham is defensively stable and doesn’t make it easy for the blues. Until the 43rd minute!
The doorbell rings just before the break! Timo Werner initiates his goal himself, playing on Pulisic, who fits Chilwell on the left. He in turn plays to Werner, who is lurking in the penalty area and just has to push the ball in. After more than two months Werner finally hits again – and then it’s such an important goal!
The German MUST have made it 2-0 in the 55th minute! Mount pulls from about 25 meters, keeper Fabianski can parry the ball, but it rebounds – right in front of Werner’s feet. He actually only has to push the ball into empty goals from a short distance – and shoots past the far corner. One hundred percent!
Chelsea caused quite a stir this week. The Blues also wanted to join the Super League, but there was protest from the fans. The Londoners also rowed back in a statement on Saturday, apologizing to the supporters: “The owner (Roman Abramovich, ed.) And the board of directors understand that the intended participation was not the right decision. It is a decision that we very much regret. “
Tuchel didn’t want to know anything about the topic before the game: “I switched off the entire Internet around me for the last two days.” The coach concentrated on preparing for the important game against West Ham – and it was worth it. Chelsea are stabilizing in 4th place and are now fully on course for the Champions League.
