Timo Werner wouldn’t get into Liverpool’s starting XI, claims Jamie Carragher

Werner wouldn't get in Liverpool's team according to club legend

Timo Werner made his long-awaited Chelsea debut on Monday night. 

The Blues agreed a deal to sign him way back in June and after arriving at Stamford Bridge to watch the remainder of the 2019/20 season, the German had to wait three months to debut. 

But it was well worth the wait. Werner really does look like the player Chelsea have been missing for years.

The striker looks absolutely rapid, linked up well with his new teammates and despite not scoring against Brighton, it's clear the goals will start flowing very soon. 

Although he didn't find the net himself, Werner did win the penalty that Jorginho converted for Chelsea's first goal in a 3-1 win. 

But despite an impressive debut, Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher made a rather controversial comment about the new signing. 

He believes that Werner, despite potentially being 'one that got away' would fail to break into Liverpool's starting XI. 

Werner would struggle at Liverpool apparently

"He could be [the one that got away]," Carragher said on Monday Night Football. 

"Right now, he wouldn’t get in the Liverpool front three. Watching him for Leipzig, you think about how much he loves that left channel.

"For Liverpool, you think of the greatest striker in the Premier League in Thierry Henry - who used to favour that left-hand side.

Carra doesn't back Werner at Liverpool

"He can play left of the front three, but predominantly, he will be the central striker."

That's quite a bold claim - and one that he's made after another former Red, Peter Crouch, claimed Liverpool need to bolster their attacking line. 

"There are only so many times Mohamed Salah, who bailed out his team, and Sadio Mane can produce heroics," Crouch said, per the Liverpool Echo. 

Salah and Mane would keep Werner out of the Liverpool team

"Adding another midfielder - such as Bayern Munich's Thiago Alcantara - or back-up striker would be welcomed. I have a feeling they missed a trick not getting Timo Werner." 

After watching Werner's Chelsea debut, we can't help but side with Crouchy on this one.
