Chris Sutton Urges Thomas Tuchel To Unleash The Chelsea Duo.

Date:

Chris Sutton thinks it would be good for Thomas Tuchel to ‘unleash’ Timo Werner on Real Madrid as Chelsea aims to produce a memorable Champions League comeback at Santiago.

That is the suggestion of the former Blues striker, who says Werner can cause Madrid a lot of problems, considering his team’s brace performance against Southampton.

Germany’s sensation Werner scored two times in Chelsea’s ruthless 6-0 thriller against Southampton last weekend. His performance may have given Tuchel reason enough to put him in the starting eleven against the Spanish giants in the second leg.

Tuchel did not substitute Werner in the first leg at Stamford Bridge, which Real Madrid won 3-1 thanks to Karim Benzema’s superb hat-trick.

‘Following their loss at home to Real Madrid last week, Chelsea needs to sort several things should they want to get back into the tie,’ Sutton told the Daily Mail.

‘Firstly, they cannot allow Karim Benzema to torment them like he was able to last week. His movement caused the Chelsea backline all sorts of bother.

‘With Romelu Lukaku not even in the squad, it is time for Chelsea to unleash the forgotten man Timo Werner. His pace and movement can combine well with the guile of Kai Havertz to cause Real Madrid plenty of issues.

‘Despite not trusting him defensively, Thomas Tuchel would be wise to call upon Marcos Alonso, who can provide the European champions with an extra dimension going forward.’

Tuchel claimed the Champions League quarter-final tie was over after Real Madrid secured a two-goal advantage at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are bidding to become just the second team to retain the Champions League crown. Still, they will need to produce an exceptional performance against 13-time winners and Spanish champions-elect Real Madrid.

Sutton added: ‘If Tuchel’s defeatist attitude is genuine, and he thinks they’ve got nothing to lose, isn’t Werner worth throwing into the mix? Why not?
