Timo Werner gas been deployed at the wing for the most part of the season and while many believe that’s just because our wingers are not always available, there were still doubts if Lampard will actually play Werner at Top 9 when all the wingers are fit.
Werner has been performing fairly at the wing but of recent he became awful at that position and that raised questions on Lampard’s decision to put him out there.
In the Press Conference ahead of match week 14, Lampard was given the opportunity to talk about Wener playing up front or at the wing and the boss insist Werner can play and has played in all front three positions before.
Lampard was clearly not having any criticism. He said:
When I don’t have a reference of a target man, I get asked why I am not playing a Tammy or Oli. Timo has played in all those roles across the front three in Germany.
