Chelsea striker Timo Werner hopes he is "back on track" after scoring against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

The German snapped an 11-match run without scoring as Chelsea secured a penalty shootout win to reach the fourth-round.

"It's good to be back on the score sheet, good to score at Stamford Bridge and I'm happy that I'm back on the pitch," Werner told the club's website.

"I think that the last few weeks were not very easy for me, but every goal, every assist brings me back on track, so it was good for me today and also for the team.

"I think both teams gave everything. Aston Villa were a very tough opponent and they showed why they are always very hard to play against. I think in the second half we were lucky to score an early goal, it gave us a little bit of a push, but 10 or 15 minutes after the goal we lost a bit of control when we conceded.

"After that we wanted to finish the game in 90 minutes, it was important. In the end it didn't happen, but good penalties at the end saved us."
