In the 69th minute of today’s Premier League tie against Burnley, Chelsea have extended their lead to three goals after a clinical move involving Reece James, Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.
James controlled the ball on the halfway line before charging forwards, the full-back cut the ball back to Ziyech, who took on touch before slipping Werner in with a tidy pass.
Werner collected the ball and tucked it into the bottom right corner with a lovely finish. The striker was initially left on the bench, but ended up starting after an injury to Christian Pulisic in the warm up.
