After Chelsea lost out of the Carabao Cup where they lost to their host, Tottenham Hotspur via a penalty shoot-out, fans were baffled that Timo Werner did not get to take part in the penalty shoot-out.
Frank Lampard has explained to baffled Chelsea fans why hotshot striker Timo Werner did not take a pen last night in Chelsea’s EFL Cup loss at Spurs.
Mason Mount missed the crucial fifth penalty to send Chelsea tumbling out of the League Cup – after Werner had put Chelsea in command with a fine strike in the first half.
Despite his goal, he was not one of the five who walked up to the spot and boss Lampard has said injury concerns was the reason why.
The Blues boss said: “You work on penalties and try and have a plan but it’s very difficult to know.
“Timo had some cramp at the end and Timo would have probably taken one so we had to adjust around that.”
