Olivier Giroud, Chelsea striker, has said new team-mate Timo Werner does not have the same ‘profile’ as him in the field.
This has made the Frenchman confident he can feature in Frank Lampard’s first XI this season.
Werner joined Blues in June in a £53million move from RB Leipzig.
The 24-year-old signed a five-year deal with the chelsea, following a season in which he scored 34 goals in 45 games.
Werner has already opened his Chelsea account, scoring four minutes into their friendly against Brighton.
He joins Giroud and Tammy Abraham as Lampard’s centre-forward options, but the former Arsenal man believes the new signing will boost morale around the Cobham training ground.
Giroud told Telefoot: “I haven’t spoken to Lampard. One thing is certain: the competition will pull us all to the top. A great club should have different options in each position.
