- Cesc Fabregas says Timo Werner's struggles are due to his teammates not feeding him well with the ball
- The 25-year-old attacker scored his first EPL goal during the Blues 3-1 triumph over Southampton on October 2
- Werner moved to Stamford Bridge from Bundesliga side Leipzig in a deal of about £47.5m in July 2020
Timo Werner has been a shadow of himself since he moved to Chelsea from RB Leipzig in a five-year deal valued at around £47.5 million in the summer of 2020.
The German forward gave the Blues fans so much hope owing to his impressive performances for his immediate former club.
However, the 25-year-old has only managed 14 goals and 16 assists in 62 appearances so far for the Stamford Bridge dwellers.
His misfiring has now become a source of worry not just to the fans, but also to a few players who have represented the club in the past - one of which is Cesc Fabregas.
The Spanish midfielder who spent five seasons with the Premier League outfit claims Werner is 'frustrated' by his teammates.
Fabregas insists that the west London club can help the German star reach his peak again if his teammates serve him the ball during matches.
What Cesc Fabregas said about Werner
Daily Mail quoted the former Barcelona player during a question and answer session online, saying:
"He makes so many good runs but sometimes they either don't see him or don't play the pass. He looks fed up sometimes."
The former Leipzig man scored his first Premier League goal in eight months during his side's 3-1 triumph over Southampton and after the game, he told the club media that he was super excited.
