Chelsea newboy Timo Werner has voiced out his delight after making his Premier League debut in the 3-1 win over Brighton on Monday night.
The Germany international was quick to confess how different the Premier League was, compared to the German Bundesliga.
After making his debut, the 24-year-old striker said he noticed that the Premier League was “something different”.
Timo Werner looked lively all night and was rewarded with a penalty to show for his relentless contributions on Monday.
The former RB Leibzig talisman joined Chelsea this summer for just £47.5million and has already settled into the fold at Stamford Bridge.
A very happy Werner was quick to confirm just how different the Premier League was to the Bundesliga.
“I’m really excited, it was a tough game today, like everybody said to me before that Premier League football is something different,” he told the press.
“It was a hard game, before the 1-1 we played not so good in the second half and after the 1-1 we make it better.
“Reece [James] scored an amazing goal and what brings us back into the game and at the end the corner decides the game so we are very happy that we win today, and hopefully that we win more games next time.”
Chelsea were 1-0 up in the first half thanks to a penalty won by Timo Werner in the 23rd minute which was converted by Jorginho.
Brighton’s Trossard then equalized things with his second half goal.
However, a scorching stunner from Reece James and a deflected Kurt Zouma shot helped Lampard’s men breeze past Brighton.
After his remarks, Werner was asked what made the Premier League different, and he said there were several points, with the physicality one of them.
“The game is totally different. In some situations we have a lot more space because the field is very big and you can make a lot of runs like we have in the first half after we lead 1-0,” he said.
“But when you come out of the cabin in the second half, the game was totally different, it changed completely and the other team, Brighton, done very well and gave us a lot of problems.
“Of course the physicality and the strength of the defenders, I played against three massive defenders, you don’t have something like that in Germany.
“I’m happy to be here and I think it was a good first game for me and for the whole team.”
Chelsea’s next game in the Premier League will see them welcome reigning champions Liverpool to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
