Chelsea star Timo Werner has gone viral for his hilarious reaction for receiving a yellow wine gum during today’s Premier League win over Norwich. The Germany international missed the match at Stamford Bridge through injury. But that didn’t matter, with the Blues cruising to a 7-0 win over Daniel Farke’s team.
Chelsea ran riot against Norwich on Saturday, extending their lead at the top of the Premier League table in the process.
Mason Mount bagged a hat-trick, coming after the England international had previously failed open his account for the season.
And Reece James, Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi – as well as an own goal from Max Aarons – saw them pick up all three points.
It was a fine day for everybody involved at Chelsea.
But Werner didn’t appear to be having the best time on the sidelines.
The Germany international was seen being passed what appeared to be an orange wine gum.

And his face is utterly precious, with Werner looking appalled at the tiny sweet in his hands.
The incident has gone viral, with Chelsea supporters amused by the footage.
And when Werner returns from injury remains to be seen, though the Blues are firing on all cylinders without the former RB Leipzig star ar present.
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was full of praise for his side after the win against Norwich, hailing them for their attacking display.
“We played a good performance. We were sharp and put in a lot of effort,” he said.
“We pressed high and won many balls, we played with a high rhythm and created a lot of chances.

“To score seven you also need a bit of luck and momentum, but it was a good effort.
“This is just one game, the next one follows on Tuesday evening [in the EFL Cup]. The players deserve all the credit, but it’s also only one game.
“The focus was that we keep the same intensity and we create opportunities. This is what we demanded.
“You need luck to score and you need the moment. That’s why I’m happy because the intensity was high and the rhythm was high.
“I feel very sorry [for Daniel Farke] because we did not stop and we didn’t want to stop. We said at half-time we wanted to keep going.
“It feels horrible for Daniel today – I hope he keeps his head up and puts his team back on track. He deserves it and he’s a good guy.”
Norwich boss Farke, meanwhile, has insisted now isn’t the time to talk about relegation.
“It’s an unbelievably tough day,” said the German.
“In all areas we were not good enough for this level. We spoke about this before the game.
“We were nowhere near to what we can play. We were too slow in the head. The goals we conceded were not even too difficult to defend against. For this world-class level we were not competitive enough.
“It’s important to always put pressure on Jorginho and Kovacic and also to protect the runs.
“I wish we’d done better in certain situations. We didn’t show enough quality to be competitive.
“At this level you always have pressure, but I’m just focusing on how I can help the team.
“It was clear before the game that it would be a tough task. At home to Leeds – these are the type of games where we need to pick up points.
“It’s not the right moment to start a discussion [about relegation].
“It’s not the time to talk too much, it’s time to roll the sleeves up and work.”
