Timo Werner admitted that ‘crazy stuff’ in his head has contributed to his Chelsea struggles but feels he is in the right place mentally to succeed now.

Werner has only found the back of the net five times in 30 Premier League appearances – scoring a further five goals in cup competitions.

The Chelsea forward, who moved to Stamford Bridge from Red Bull Leipzig last summer, confessed to putting too much pressure on himself to succeed but is confident a ‘patient’ approach will help the goals come flooding back.

‘I don’t think I missed the quality to score goals in maybe a half year. When I first game to Chelsea in the first 12 games I had eight goals so it was nearly the same like in Leipzig,’ Werner told the club’s Youtube channel.

‘Then there comes a break in the middle of the season, something changed.

‘Maybe I get – because it’s a new country, new team – a bit of crazy stuff in my head, I have to score every game, then I don’t do it.

‘It was something not good for me, but now in the moment it goes back to where I’ve been in my head also – not only in the quality on the pitch but also in my head – I’m confident and happy with myself even when I’m not scoring.

‘I’ve come back to being patient, calm to say, “don’t try to bring the things to you, let the things come to you”. So some people give me a good advice, they go to the disco, they want to have a girl, they don’t get a girl because they want it.

‘The next day they go to the disco and they stand on the side and it comes 100 girls because they like him. It’s the same in football, they said.

‘So I’ll give my best for the team and maybe it starts next season and not this season but it will come. Until then, I will work hard for myself and that’s important.’
