Timo Werner is 'frustrating' to watch, says Rio Ferdinand, who urges the Chelsea forward to 'slow the game down a bit' after being 'loose in possession' and making poor decisions against Atletico Madrid

Rio Ferdinand was not impressed with the performance of Timo Werner on Tuesday night, in Chelsea's 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

The Chelsea forward has scored 10 goals in 34 appearances this season in all competitions, and fans have been crying out for more from him.

'It's frustrating watching him, because you've seen clips of what he can do,' Ferdinand said on BT Sport, as Werner once again failed to get on the score sheet.

Timo Werner has struggled at times since arriving at Chelsea from RB Leipzig in the summer

'It's not an easy chance, but you'd like to see him get it on target,' he said of one opportunity after the full time whistle.
