Premier League Specials: Timo Werner 14/1 to hit double figures for Tottenham

Timo Werner has joined Tottenham Hotspur on loan for the rest of the season with bet365 asking how many goals he’ll get during that time.

The former Chelsea forward is 4/6 to score five or more Premier League goals and 14/1 to do what he never managed at Stamford Bridge and bag 10 or more.

bet365’s Steve Freeth said: “Werner first came to these shores with a huge transfer fee around his neck after bagging 28 Bundesliga goals during the 2019/20 campaign – he hasn’t scored that many over the last four seasons combined.

“However, he joins a side playing attacking football under Ange Postecoglou and he has the added incentive of the Euros being held in Germany in just five months’ time, so it could be win-win for both parties.”

Premier League Total Goals

Throughout his Premier League stay, Timo Werner established himself as one of the most divisive players in the division.

Those who give credence to xG and other assorted stats kept the faith with Werner, insisting that he’d eventually come good; those who don’t, didn’t, with the German written off as a flop in many quarters.

Werner certainly arrived in West London with a rapidly growing reputation; he’d scored 28 goals in his final Bundesliga season (and 50 in the three before that) earning a move for nearly £50m but his Premier League struggles were well documented.

Nevertheless, there’s little risk in Tottenham’s loan move for a player struggling for game time in Germany, with the 27-year-old limited to just two Bundesliga starts this term. 

Spurs have lost talisman Son Heung-min to the Asian Cup, leaving the goalscoring burden on Richarlison who – despite a decent run of recent form – is yet to prove himself as an established goalscorer, Brennan Johnson, who’s still trying to capture his Nottingham Forest form, and Dejan Kulusevski.

It leaves Ange Postecoglou short of firepower throughout January, and Werner will be a useful body to have – not just for the next few months, but for the rest of the season, without Tottenham having to splash out on an expensive permanent signing, particularly with Werner’s versatility making him a useful option to lead the line, play in behind a striker or operate from the wing. 

Although he’s never been able to replicate the goalscoring form from his first Leipzig spell, Werner’s goal tally has broadly mirrored his xG for six years, and if Postcoglou’s men can keep carving out chances like they have for Son, then Werner’s pace and off-the-ball movement could equate to some very useful goals in Tottenham’s quest for Champions League football.
