Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel reveals compatroit Timo Werner is further down the penalty pecking order at the club.

Timo Werner won a penalty after a very unnecessary and poor tackle from Tottenham defender Eric Dier.

Italian midfielder, Jorginho stepped up and converted the spot kick, which turned out to be the decisive goal in the 1-0 away victory.

Quizzed about the regular penalty takers, Tuchel told reporters post-game: “The guys took some penalties in the last nine days after training.

“We have Willy Caballero and the guys pushing the penalty takers to be serious, and if you are not then you don’t score.

“So you get a good picture of who is capable and today it was Mason and Jorginho on the sheet: we put the two names and I said to Jorginho just before the match if he feels confident to take a penalty, and he said clearly yes.

“So we trusted him, but I did not discuss with him how to take it.”
