RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann trusts Timo Werner to make the difference against Bayern München on Saturday.

Werner has been in red-hot form this season so far, racking up five goals in his first three league games, and Nagelsmann has backed the striker to continue his good form against the Bavarians.

"Individual quality can be the deciding factor in matches like this. We want Timo Werner
to be in top condition. He has been impressive in training," Nagelsmann said at today's pre-match conference, as quoted by RB Leipzig.

"Timo Werner's talent makes him an important player for Saturday. He's capable of hurting Bayern," he added.

RB Leipzig are top of the table after winning their first three games this season.
