'Timo Werner And Kai Havertz's Failure At Chelsea Cost Frank Lampard His Job'

Timo Werner and Kai Havertz's failure at Chelsea cost Frank Lampard his job and the signing of Ben Chilwell was the ONLY transfer he was keen on.

That's according to Harry Redknapp who claims Lampard paid the ultimate price for the pair of Germans flopping so far this season.

He couldn't get the best out of his summer signings with the likes of Werner and Havertz failing to make an impression in the league.

Redknapp, who managed Lampard at West Ham, believes he was under pressure as a result of Werner and Havertz underperforming.

He told The Sun: "Chelsea spent fortunes on new players and as manager you're under pressure - not only to play them - but for them also to be an instant success.

"When they don't, like the two Germans Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, then the buck stops with the boss.

"But I'm sure Frank isn't the one behind all the signings Chelsea have made."

He added: "I'd say the only one he was mad keen on getting was Ben Chilwell. That's how crazy the game has become.

"The most important man in the building is whoever is in charge of recruitment.

"And if his judgment isn't good, you're in trouble."

Of course, Thomas Tuchel swiftly filled the managerial void at Stamford Bridge and he started Havertz in his first match in charge against Wolves.

The ex-Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain boss could only manage a draw in midweek.

But he claimed his first win as Chelsea manager after beating Burnley on Sunday in a game where Werner started but failed to get on the score-sheet.

Tuchel takes on Jose Mourinho's Tottenham next Thursday in his first big test since taking over at Chelsea.
