Ferdinand believes Timo Werner will shine brightly next season, and will boost Chelsea to Premier League glory – ahead of Manchester City, Liverpool and Man United.

Werner will bang. Werner will bang next year. It’s his first year in the country. People are forgetting he’s settling in – during a pandemic by the way. This isn’t the easiest settling-in period.”

It’s hard to disagree with Rio on this one – Chelsea are playing some fine football at the moment and Werner has managed a respectable 12 goals and 13 assists in his debut season (47 games thus far).
