Werner: ’I think it’s the unluckiest season I’ve ever had and will have maybe’
Werner was at the heart of the action throughout.
Jorginho and Antonio Rudiger were on target for the Blues as Chelsea win 2-1 against Leicester at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea leapfrogged Leicester in the Premier League table with a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge. Jorginho and Antonio Rudiger were on target for the Blues.
Werner was at the heart of the action throughout. After being denied a penalty in the first half, he won one for Jorginho’s breakthrough goal. He also had two goals disallowed – one for offside and one for handball.
“The first half was the picture of the whole season for me,” he told Sky Sports. “I was close but not really close.
“I think it’s the unluckiest season I’ve ever had and will have maybe. Offside, a clear penalty and then I want to make a header, I get a little push and I head it against my arm.
“But when you are so unlucky but you still reach the Champions League final and maybe reach the Champions League next season, everything is good.”
Tuchel was reluctant to praise Werner’s performance, however, instead urging him to focus on Chelsea’s remaining games.
“It’s his job to be involved in everything and he needs to be involved on Sunday again,” the Chelsea boss added.
“It’s no time now for extra praise. Enjoy it, shut up, enjoy your free day and be ready for Aston Villa, nothing else.
“I’m not worried, I just don’t feel comfortable now celebrating, I just say what’s needed.”
The victory lifts Chelsea up to third place, above Leicester, who will drop out of the top four if Liverpool beat Burnley on Wednesday, and puts their hopes of a top-four finish in their own hands ahead of their meeting with Aston Villa on the final day.
