Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has suggested Timo Werner is being hampered by his Chelsea teammates inability to spot his runs, with the forward looking ‘fed up’ as a result.

Timo Werner arrived at Stamford Bridge last summer in a £47.5million move from RB Leipzig, though after netting 28 goals in the Bundesliga he managed just six in his maiden campaign in the Premier League.

The German registered one goal in seven league appearances so far in a 3-1 victory over Southampton, while he has played just 44 minutes in the Champions League this season.

Cesc Fabregas, though, remains a fan of Werner and his run-making and actually feels his issue at the moment is that his teammates are not feeding him when he looks to get in behind.

During a Q&A on Twitter on Thursday, Fabregas was asked about his thoughts on the German striker and he replied:

"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."

Fabregas who spent four-and-a-half seasons at Stamford Bridge, was also asked about his old teammate Andreas Christensen, who is out of contract with Chelsea next summer when he can leave on a free transfer.

He replied: “What a player, very underrated. He’s very shy and doesn’t make too much noise because he hardly makes mistakes.”

Both Werner and Lukaku are currently sidelined through injury and are not expected to feature in Saturday’s trip to St James’ Park to face Newcastle. However, the pair are expected to be back to Chelsea squad after the international break.
