WATCH: Timo Werner Injuries Himself After Kicking The Corner Flag: The Chelsea striker was involved in a bemusing incident during a corner
Enduring one of the most appalling periods of his footballing career, Timo Werner’s abysmal form continued against City. The striker was not at his usual self yet again, failing to control the ball and run with it at his feet along with persistently finding himself out of Chelsea’s attacks.
Unfortunately for him, his sorry form infront of goal wasn’t the only problem for the striker on the day. In a horrifically embarrassing moment for the Chelsea man, Werner ended up injuring himself while taking a corner for the club.
Timo Werner Kicking the Corner Flag
Deciding to pass the ball short to Mason Mount from the corner, Werner failed to get even that right. His pass saw him thud his foot into the corner flag with the player eventually left grimacing after making contact.
The hilarious 88th minute incident perfectly typified Werner’s recent plight at the club. After initially fathoming four goals and three assists, he’s now gone 12 matches without a goal for Chelsea, a decline in form which has massively hurt the club.

Werner’s wayward form meant Chelsea were yet again lacklustre infront of goal on the day. While the side did manage to hit one towards the tailend of their fixture as Havertz and Callum Hudson-Odoi combined for a neat strike, it meant little in the large scheme of things.
Chelsea were played out of the park by City all across the 90 minutes with the home side having no shout at making their way back in the contest. The club had only itself to beat for its dormant showing as both attack and defence collapsed in unison to see the club leave their ardent supporters downtrodden.
Chelsea are left with the solitary win in their last five matches, results which have seen the club lose their status as a top 4 club. The team is in torrid form at the moment with many calling for Lampard’s heads owing to his shambolic handling of the club.
