Thomas Tuchel’s Incredible Reaction To Timo Werner’s Horror Miss For Chelsea

Thomas Tuchel produced an incredible reaction on the touchline, as he couldn't believe Timo Werner's open goal miss in West Ham vs Chelsea.

The German international striker had actually broken his duck in the first half of Saturday's Premier League game, coolly finishing off Ben Chilwell's ball into the box for his first goal since mid-February. But he missed an even easier chance to score in the second half.

Mason Mount's shot was parried by Lukasz Fabianski, Werner got there first with the goal at his mercy and in space - but somehow he put his finish wide.

Tuchel looked stunned on the side of the pitch - as if he genuinely could not believe what he had seen.

The Chelsea boss shook his head, raised his hands and turned away with a look of total disbelief in his eyes.

It was a pretty amazing miss as Chelsea entered the last quarter of the game - a crucial one in the battle for the top-four places - 1-0 up rather than leading by two goals.

Werner's all-round play was actually excellent once again in the match against the Hammers - as it has been for some weeks. But clearly his issues with clinical finishing in front of goal remain.

As Thomas Tuchel's eyes alone would tell you.
