Video: Timo Werner scores first Chelsea goal after fine pass from Ziyech in pre-season friendly

It’s taken Chelsea just three minutes to open the scoring in their pre-season friendly against fellow Premier League side Brighton this afternoon.

New signing Hakim Ziyech picked up the ball deep on the right-wing and floated an amazing cross into the box with his left-foot.

Academy graduate Callum Hudson-Odoi almost had a moment to forget as his attempt to head the ball into the net was so wayward that it ended up being a pass to another new arrival in Timo Werner.

The Germany international made no mistake as he slotted the ball over the line with a lovely side-foot finish to mark his first ever goal for the club.

Frank Lampard will be hoping that new attacking recruits Ziyech and Werner can use these pre-season fixtures to make a flawless start to life at Stamford Bridge, with the new Premier League season starting on September 12.
