Chelsea goalscorer Timo Werner has revealed why he did not take a penalty in the shoot-out against Aston Villa on Wednesday evening.

The Blues came out 4-3 victors on penalties after the German’s opening goal was cancelled out by a Cameron Archer equaliser in normal time.

Speaking to Chelsea TV, Werner explained why he did not take one of Chelsea’s five penalties.

He said: “First of all because of my calf, some pain in my calf, I couldn’t go out [get subbed] because we made three substitutions. When you have fit players on the pitch, it’s better that they shoot than me today.”

It appears that the right decision was made as the Blues came out victorious and will now face Southampton in the next round of the Carabao Cup.

Werner looked bright throughout and created several chances. The forward was unlucky not to double his tally for the night in the second half, rolling a chance just wide.
