Video: Timo Werner breaks deadlock for Chelsea vs Tottenham with clinical strike

However, as seen in the video below, it was Chelsea who drew first blood as Werner produced a superb finish on the edge of the box to show just how clinical he can be.

After some excellent play from Cesar Azpilicueta down the right side, the ball found the German international in space and after taking a touch to compose himself, he produced a top-class finish to find the back of the net and give the Spurs goalkeeper no chance.

Chelsea will no doubt hope to build on that and safely advance to the next round, while Werner is now up and running having bagged his first competitive goal for the club.
