FA Cup: Solskjaer expresses fear over Iheanacho ahead of Leicester vs Man United

Antonio Rudiger has named two players faster than said Timo Werner at Chelsea mentioning himself among them.

Rudiger said although Werner has always been quick since he was young, he [Rudiger] and Fikayo Tomori are the fastest.

When Werner joined Chelsea from Leipzig, the first thing he said was that “My speciality is that I am really fast.”

And this the German international has shown on many occasions including Hakim Ziyech’s opening goal in the 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, which was made possible by his outpacing Atleti defenders.

Asked whether he knew that Werner would make it at the top level, the centre-back told Soccer AM: “Yes, because his speed and eagerness to score goals, [these] come to him naturally.

“When he came up the first time [at Stuttgart], he was 16 or 17, and in training, he was so fast, so quick, and his finishing was very good at that level.

“It was just a matter of time for him to breakthrough [at highest level].

“Honestly, something tells me that Fik [Tomori] and I are quicker [than Werner],” he explained.

“Maybe not for the first 10 metres, but if we go, I would say it’s between me and Fik.”
