According to Liverpool legend and now football pundit Jamie Carragher, Chelsea’s Timo Werner might be good, but he can not take anyone out of the Liverpool front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah.

Werner was heavily linked with a move to Anfield earlier this year but he sealed a £53m move to Frank Lampard’s Chelsea instead.

The Germany international made his competitive debut for the Blues in their 3-1 win at Brighton on Monday and won the penalty that saw Jorginho put the visitors into the lead. 

Chelsea will face Liverpool next with the 24-year-old looking for his first goal for the club, but when asked if he could be one that got away for the Reds, Carragher replied on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football:

‘He could be.

‘Right now, he wouldn’t get in the Liverpool front three.

‘Watching him for Leipzig, you think about how much he loves that left channel.

‘For Liverpool, you think of the greatest striker in the Premier League in Thierry Henry – who used to favor that left-hand side.

‘He can play left of the front three, but predominantly, he will be the central striker.’

Werner netted 78 times in 127 league appearances for RB Leipzig before his move to England.
