Chelsea hero Joe Cole wants to see summer signing Timo Werner pay the price for his poor form.

The German international has been below par in recent weeks and has not scored in eight games for the club.

"I think Werner, when he comes in off that left, he's very, very dangerous," Cole said on Amazon Prime Video after Chelsea's loss to Wolves on Wednesday.

"I just think he just needs to brush up on his finishing, but he's a young striker and he will do that.

"So I've got no doubts he'll be a top player for Chelsea but there's options now and he [Lampard] needs to move it around.

"[Hakim] Ziyech and [Callum] Hudson-Odoi to come back in, freshen it up at some point. Take Werner out, bring him back in.

"It's a marathon to win a title usually, and certainly this year. You've got to use your whole squad.

"So Werner maybe come out, bring the other lads back in."
