Timo Werner has opened up on snubbing Liverpool for Chelsea, as the two Premier League clubs prepare to face each other this weekend.

Chelsea have signed Werner from Bundesliga club RB Leipzig in this window and he's arrived in West London with big expectation on his shoulders.

The Egyptian star will be hoping to maintain his lightning start to the season when the Reds travel to Stamford Bridge for their next Premier League fixture against Chelsea on Sunday.

Ahead of the game, Werner has told ESPN that he could well have fit in at Liverpool, branding them a "great team" - but Chelsea managed to tempt him into picking them over waiting for Liverpool.

Louis' hits, both singles, over three innings, and Freddy Peralta (3-1) followed by striking out three in two innings. Woodruff pitched all seven innings, giving up seven hits, including two homers, and striking out five.

Asked to predict the signing of the season, Ferdinand said on YouTube: "I'm going to go for Werner".

Chelsea fans can be excited by the very little they've heard from Werner, as it sounds like he's got an elite mentality and he's got the makings of being a talisman in Lampard's team.

Jurgen Klopp, a known admirer of the player, had refused to dismiss the speculation during a press conference earlier this month, but it is understood the Reds boss has been the driving force behind the deal, believing the former Barcelona man will play a key role as his side look to defend their league crown and compete for Champions League glory.

The speedster scored 34 goals and supplied 15 assists in 45 appearances across all competitions last season for Leipzig, which just highlights that the Blues have signed a frontman who knows where the net is.
