Werner scored three in three matches for Germany earlier this month, but Wednesday’s goal was his first of the season for Chelsea

Reece James scored the winning penalty in a shootout as Chelsea reached the last 16 of the Carabao Cup at Aston Villa’s expense.

The full-back fired home the Blues’ final penalty to win the shootout 4-3.

A goal from young Villa forward Cameron Archer had ensured a draw in normal time, levelling with a header after Timo Werner had put the Blues ahead.

Werner’s goal was his first in 11 games for Chelsea and he should have had a second but dragged a shot wide.

The result extends the reigning European champions’ unbeaten start to the season, which has also seen them top the Premier League with 13 points from five matches.
