Timo Werner’s Response To Playing Against Brighton Defenders In Chelsea's 3-1 Win Is Just Brilliant
Chelsea new boy Timo Werner hilariously admitted that he has never played against such "massive defenders" after his side beat Brighton 3-1.
And Werner tasted his first dose of life in the Premier League as Chelsea travelled to the Amex for their first league match of the season.
Speaking after the match, the former RB Leipzig star was surprised by how big the opposition defenders were in the match.
"Yeah, Premier League is different football because I think defenders... I have never played against three defenders like this so tall, so big massive defenders," Werner said.
"But the game, for me, it makes it really fun. Especially in the first half, I have a lot of space where I can do my runs."
Fans loved Werner's reaction to life in the Premier League and flooded Twitter with responses to the post-match interview.
