Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has given credit to Timo Werner after Saturday's 3-0 win over Aston Villa.

Lukaku scored twice at Stamford Bridge, and speaking after the game, he heaped praise on Werner for his role in his second strike.

"The coach asked before the game to play forward as fast as possible when we recover the ball,"Lukaku told Chelsea TV.

"Kova is a player with a lot of qualities, we have a lot of players in the midfield who have that forward pass, today he gave me a brilliant pass and I think the pass made the goal, I was really happy.

"I think I have to give a lot of credit for Timo because Timo created a lot of space for me.

"As soon as he created the space to run in behind the two defenders I had a lot of time, the touch was good and the finish was just clinical."
