What Lampard told Timo Werner after Penalty miss in FA Cup fourth round vs Luton



Chelsea manager Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard told Chelsea striker Timo Werner to hold his head up as his disastrous form in front of goal continued in the FA Cup.


Werner missed a late penalty against Luton after he was knocked down in the box and his luck seems to be out at this point.


The German has only scored one goal in his last 16 games for Chelsea and his confidence appears to be low.


It was a job well done for Lampard and his Chelsea team at the end with Tammy Abraham scoring a hat trick in a 3-1 win over Luton to advance to the Fifth Round of the FA Cup.


When asked what he said to Werner, Lampard told talkSPORT: “To keep my head up. It is clear that the goals have not gone well. We have been putting it in front of the goal a lot.

“But there are periods in your career and in life when you are not doing quite well and maybe the penalty is the pinnacle of that.

“Everything else was given in the game. He was bummed at the end, but I told him to keep his head up for those last few minutes because he showed a lot of intention, running behind, getting into areas and giving a threat.


“Teams will be scared of Timo Werner when they’re playing and he’s playing on your shoulder and wants to run behind because we’ve seen him do it.



“That is what has made him the player we brought to the club.


“It’s my job to lift his head and his teammates to support him. We have all been there. I have missed many penalties in my career and the important thing is to recover. ”
