The German ace is currently going through a goal drought that has extended to eight matches. With games coming thick and fast, adjusting to the frantic schedule has proven to be a challenge.

“I think it’s hard when you play every three days… and on Saturday against teams that can rest the whole week.”

Wener admits the Premier League is tougher than he anticipated. With physicality a major aspect, one cannot just get around by virtue of their technical ability.

“The Premier League is a little bit different to my old league. It’s tougher than I thought.”
