TIMO WERNER squandered yet another golden chance in Chelsea's huge Champions League semi-final clash with Real Madrid.
The German has developed an incredible reputation for missing absolute sitters since joining the Blues last summer.
And while former Chelsea No1 Thibaut Courtois was at least forced into a save this time around, fans were left fuming by Werner's wasteful finishing in the first leg at Valdebebas.
Mason Mount launched an incredible counter-attack, weaving his way from deep in his own half into Real Madrid's penalty area.
After cutting inside onto his right foot, the England star took a shot at goal.
It subsequently took a huge deflection, spinning into Christian Pulisic's path.
The American smartly nodded straight to Werner, who was all alone and had Courtois to beat from just six yards.
But beat him he could not – instead providing a typically meek finish straight at the imposing Belgian.
While Blues fans were disappointed in Werner, their former keeper provided a stark reminder of what they've been missing, particularly after replacing him with Kepa Arrizabalaga – prior to signing Edouard Mendy.
But fans on social media weren't forgiving of Werner, despite Courtois' great stop.

One wrote: "£50million down the drain, Timo Werner misses again."
And another added: "More like big miss from Werner. Anywhere but there."
A third lamented: "Every match without fail."
And a fourth asked: "how’s he missed?"
Werner, 25, did manage to notch a rare goal against West Ham at the weekend.
But that was just his first in the Premier League since February 15 and he followed it up with an astonishing miss at the London Stadium.
In total, the German has managed 11 goals in all competitions since joining for around £50million, with only six coming in the Premier League.
