Cameras picked up Timo Werner’s priceless reaction to being handed an orange wine gum as he sat on the bench during Chelsea’s emphatic 7-0 win against Norwich.
The German forward was ruled out of Saturday afternoon’s Premier League tie at Stamford Bridge after picking up a hamstring injury in the first half of their Champions League victory over Swedish side Malmo.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel confirmed on Friday that Werner will also miss next week’s EFL clash against Southampton.
Werner, who has scored seven goals for club and country this season, was spotted sitting in the stands on Saturday afternoon and at 5-0 up, the former RB Leipzig striker appeared to ask for a sweet.
In an entertaining sequence of events, the 25-year-old was, to his disgust, given an orange wine gum by one of the coaching staff.
Another member of the team was more than happy to eat his leftovers but let’s be honest; Timo Werner is all of us when we don’t get a green or yellow wine gum.
Here’s how social media reacted to the amusing incident.
Away from the wine gum antics, in-form Chelsea extended their lead at the top of the Premier League thanks to goals from Mason Mount (3), Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James, Ben Chilwell and an own goal from Max Aarons.
