Timo Werner is hoping to continue his goal rush after netting a first Bundesliga hat-trick in RB Leipzig’s 3-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach. Die Roten Bullen roared to the top of the German top-flight standings as they made it three league wins for three on Friday evening.

Breel Embolo netted a consolation for the hosts on 90 minutes but it was too little too late and it seems as though the Red Bull Arena outfit may well be title contenders this term. Much will depend on whether Germany striker Werner, who recently extended his stay at the club, can stay fit and in-form and the 23-year-old says he will take confidence from his maiden treble.
“I’m obviously delighted,” he told bundesliga.com. “I’ve scored quite a few braces recently, but I was never able to get a third, despite having some good chances. “Thankfully I managed it today and I’m obviously very happy. It’s nice to have managed it for the first time and I hope that there are more to come.”
