Werner endures familiar problem
Timo Werner’s ability to make penetrating runs has never been in doubt. Even in his time at Chelsea, which is generally remembered for a lack of conviction in front of goal, the German frequently stretched defences with his vast energy reserves.
But he wasn’t always found. The same issue cropped up against City, where thousands inside the ground were left perplexed that he wasn’t played in behind on numerous occasions, with Dejan Kulusevski the main culprit. Perhaps Spurs will get more out of Werner once they get used to his running habits.
