"When they played here and we drew against them, I was sitting in the stands because I was injured, and I was very impressed with how they play football," Werner continued. "They have a very good style of football, direct up front and (play) without fear.

"So they are a very good team and you have to be very careful to play against them because they can switch the speed up very quickly."

The forward will be hoping to feature having missed the reverse fixture as Chelsea seek a win, sitting 13 points off league leaders Manchester City as their Premier League title hopes fade away.

The match takes place at 20:00 (UK) as Thomas Tuchel's men search for victory.
