Marcel Sabitzer, former teammate of Chelsea star Timo Werner, has taken to social media to congratulate the German on his match-winning strike on Saturday.

Blues victorious

Thomas Tuchel and co. were of course back in action a little under 24 hours ago.

The Pensioners made the trip to the London Stadium, for a crunch derby showdown with high-flying West Ham.

Ahead of kick-off, the two sides were locked on points in the Premier League table, amid a tense battle for a spot in the top-4.

When all was said and done, though, it was visitors Chelsea who emerged victorious, taking a significant step towards Champions League qualification in the process.

A solitary goal proved enough to guide the Blues to all three points, after Ben Chilwell’s delivery across the face of goal was directed home by Timo Werner shortly before the interval:

‘Not bad for a flop…’

In turn, on the back of the action coming to a close at the London Stadium, it came as little surprise to see match-winner Werner singled out for widespread praise.

The German was again guilty of one glaring miss during the 2nd-half, but, all told, enjoyed a fine performance, amid a much improved spell of form of late.

And, as outlined above, one individual who was particularly keen to sing Werner’s praises was ex-RB Leipzig teammate Marcel Sabitzer.

Taking to Instagram in response to a celebratory post on the part of the German, Sabitzer (who has been hotly tipped to join Tottenham this summer) joked about Werner being labelled by some as ‘a flop’.

Tammy Abraham, meanwhile, was also keen to get involved:
