The German international who was signed from RB Leipzig in the summer has had a very tough start to the Premier League and has endured talks of him being a flop after failing to score as many goals as many would have expected him to be.
Under former manager Frank Lampard, Werner was rotated in different positions making it hard for him to settle quickly but Thomas Tuchel seems to have found a way to unlock his potential in the Chelsea attack.
Against Newcastle, Werner started as a winger but would mostly be found inside the box making it hard for the Magpies fullback to track him. He was heavily involved in the first goal after his solo run on the right ended with a tap in for Giroud.
His wait did not last long however as Werner emerged at the far post to finish off a corner from the right. After scoring goal, Werner had a huge smile on his face and so did all his teammates who came to congratulate him.
However, his celebration had to be cut off for a moment as VAR checked for a possible offside but luckily for him, the goal stood and you could just see how happy he was.
Even Peter Drury while describing Werner's reaction said "that's the smile of a six-year old after scoring at a local home game"
It was clear that the Chelsea number 11 really had waited for that moment for quite a while and he was really relieved to score.
