Chelsea striker Timo Werner: 'The Premier League is totally different.'

Werner won a penalty on his Premier League debut for Chelsea.

Timo Werner admitted his joy at Chelsea's 3-1 win against Brighton on Monday night.

The Blues thrashed the Seagulls at the Amex Stadium, thanks to goals from Jorginho, James Reece, and Kurt Zouma.

Speaking to BBC's MOTD, the Germany international, who won a penalty on his Chelsea debut, said the Premier League is "something different".

"It was a hard game after 1-1 but then Reece scored an amazing goal. We are very happy that we win today," Werner said.

On the difference to playing in Germany [the Bundesliga], the former RB Leipzig star replied: "The game is totally different. There is more space but when you come out in the second half and the game was totally different and changed completely. Brighton gave us a lot of problems.

"I played against three massive defenders, you don't have that in Germany. Happy to be here and I think it was a good first game for me and the team.

"Brighton did very well from the beginning and pressed us high. The second game will become harder because it is Liverpool. I tried and did my best and got an assist for the team.

"We had a lot of players not in the rhythm now but I think we will get better and better when we play more games together."
