Timo Werner warns Chelsea's defenders after Southampton draw

Timo Werner has warned his Chelsea teammates that they will not win trophies this season if they continue to leak goals following the 3-3 draw with Southampton on Saturday.

Frank Lampard’s side were two goals in front in under 30 minutes at Stamford Bridge following Werner’s sublime double.

But Southampton pulled one back shortly before half time as Kai Havertz’s mistake in possession led to Danny Ings’ goal.

After the break, Che Adams then capitalised on two errors from Kurt Zouma and Kepa Arrizabalaga to equalise for Southampton.

Kai Havertz struck to put Chelsea back in front but the visitors earned a point through Jannik Vestergaard’s goal in injury time.

‘The first half we played very well until the goal from Southampton. When you get a goal two or three minutes before half time it is always not an easy situation because you have to have a clear head in the second half because two goals is better than one goal,’ Werner told Premier League Productions.

‘In the second half Southampton put a lot of pressure on us and pressed us high. I think we gave them too many opportunities to score goals. We have to win the game.

‘I am happy about my goals but in the end I want to win the game. It’s a day I’m 50 per cent happy and 50 per cent not.’

Asked if Chelsea have a problem in defence, Werner replied: ‘I don’t know if we have a problem but in the end the last three games we concede six goals and that’s not where we want to be.

‘I think we are Chelsea, we want to battle for titles.

‘In the end think it’s not the offence that wins titles. In Germany we always say defence wins titles. I think that’s true.

‘When we concede so many goals in every game then it’s hard to win games but in the end also to win titles.

‘I think we have to work in it because six goals in three games is too much. I think we have to be better in this.’
