Frank Lampard: Timo Werner will be fit for Liverpool

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard believes Timo Werner will be fit to play against Liverpool on Sunday.

The German picked up a knock in their 3-1 win over Brighton on Monday.

But Lampard believes it was not a major issue, as it was more of a dead leg.

“I was really pleased with Timo, with Timo I know the qualities he’s going to bring to the team,” Lampard told reporters post-game.

“We saw that with the speed to win the penalty, and the moments where he showed his speed and his qualities as well. He’s going to be a real threat, he’s a very mobile centre forward who can do so many things for us.

“So it was nice, and Timo is one that has had some games, and has had a bit of fitness, and you can see that in the way he was tonight.

“Timo took a knock when he won the penalty. It’s more of a dead leg we hope.

“I wouldn’t think too much in terms of next week there but I’d think it was a dead leg; we’ve got a bit of time for him to get right.”
