Chelsea striker Timo Werner has reacted to his missed opportunity in their 1-0 victory against West on Saturday.
The German star, who is in the process of rebuilding his confidence, said that one goal was enough for the day, and he joked that scoring two would have been too much for his recovery process.
Although, Werner conceded he should have scored the glorious opportunity he had but said he was happy to deliver the win for the blues.
Werner opened the scoring for the London side in the first half when he tapped in from six yards after a fine low cross from Ben Chilwell.
A glorious second chance was squandered after West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski had saved from Mason Mount’s long range effort but, Werner failed to score with the follow-up.
The miss drew an incredible reaction from his manager, Thomas Tuchel. And Werner joked that scoring two goals in one game would be too much, after netting his first goal since February.
“I think the second chance, I should have scored,” he told Sky Sports after the match. “But I think I have to come back slowly with one goal enough. When I score twice today, it might be too much for the beginning. No, joking.

“The confidence was there, I feel it in my legs when I have the ball at my feet that I have confidence. Yeah in the moment – this season it’s not only confidence, sometimes it’s also luck.
“Maybe last year, I hit the ball with my feet and always, it would go in, this year is different but I’m happy that I scored the first.
“The second chance like this will also go in the next few weeks and months.”
