The manager was not happy with the forward and yelled at him before the player made amends to help the Blues grab the opener.

Chelsea had no problems going past the Toffees as they recorded back-to-back victories over the Merseysiders - a victory that propels them back into the top fourth position.

Desperate to protect the unbeaten status, Chelsea showed clear intent to cart home all the three points from the blow of the whistle, dominating proceedings in the open exchanges as the visitors struggled to settle in.

They opened the scoring a little over half an hour into the match after Kai Havertz’ effort was turned in by Everton defender Godfrey.

But just five minutes earlier, Tuchel could be heard slamming Werner over his positioning and questioning his lack of tactical knowledge. He yelled:

"The last 15 mins you've only been on the left! Don't you understand?"

New boss Tuchel also admitted that the American had been unlucky not to play more, even criticising his own bad decisions.

“I can say nothing else but good things about him.
"Maybe his biggest problem is that I know him from Dortmund and I think he started only in the cup games.”
