Lampard: Werner will keep working and he’s always a weapon

While those goals have dried up throughout the team, Werner has come under the spotlight on an individual level having not scored since our win over Sheffield United in the first week of November. However, Lampard has reiterated he is not concerned for his new forward and insists the only way to get through a tough period is to practise, perspire and perfect your technique.

‘Every player goes through tough times in front of goal and I always found that work at the training ground was the only way to turn that,’ explained the boss. ‘It’s about simple work, repetition of finishing, which Timo is doing now, and when you work like that then it’s a matter of time.

‘His natural attributes will get him in front of goal, get him away from defenders and get him those chances again. The beauty is that he’s been getting chances because that’s definitely a positive. 

‘If his confidence is low from missing a couple, that’s only natural and it’s my job to help push him in a positive direction. I feel the goals will come.’
