Chelsea winger Timo Werner has admitted he is ‘struggling’ to cope with the blues hectic fixture schedule ahead of their clash against West Ham at Stamford Bridge on Monday.
Werner joined Chelsea in a £47.5 million deal from RB Leipzig, but has failed to score in his last eight appearances for Frank Lampard’s side.
Chelsea have suffered a blip this month after losing back-to-back games in the premise league against Everton and Wolves.
WerThe German International believe that those who do not play in a midweek European competition have a major advantage in terms of resting between fixtures.
“It does matter how much you cost. It’s always a bit of pressure when you come to a new club,’ Werner told Chelsea’s official website.
“The pressure is a little bit higher than the previous years but I think good footballers are the best under pressure and that’s my plan, I can do very well under pressure.
“But I think I can handle it very well. It’s not something new.The Premier League is a little bit different from my old league. It’s tougher than I thought.
“The contact here is harder than in Germany, it’s what I expected but not like this.The beginning was very good, but now after a lot of games, I’m struggling a little.
“I think it’s hard when you play every three days… and on Saturday against teams that can rest the whole week.I t makes it tough to be the best in every game but the Premier League is very fun to play in.”
