Havertz has been benched for the previous three video games, having suffered from coronavirus, whereas Werner is on an 11-match aim drought.
Bent believes Chelsea boss Frank Lampard should decide a system to accommodate his greatest gamers amid a run of only one win from their final 5 video games.
The previous England striker mentioned on Tuesday’s talkSPORT Breakfast: “Once they recruited a few of these gamers like Havertz and Werner, absolutely they’d have had an enormous whiteboard the place they recognized the areas they should strengthen.
“And so they did that. So you may’t get these gamers in after which go, ‘oh my God, the place are we going to suit these gamers in?’
“That will have been executed earlier than you signed them.
“For me, they’ve acquired to discover a system, discover a form and so they’ve acquired to play gamers that match the way in which they play.”
Werner has been deployed on the left wing because of the goalscoring type of Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham.
The Germany striker was hooked off at half-time within the 3-1 Boxing Day defeat at Arsenal as Lampard criticised his work on and off the ball.
Bent insists Lampard will ‘lose’ Werner if his barren spell in entrance of aim continues.
He added: “We all know how good Timo Werner is and the way good he will be; we’ve seen it in flashes this season.
“However when your supervisor comes out and questions your work-rate off the sector, as a result of that’s what he’s alluding to, not giving them sufficient aim menace after they’ve acquired the ball, however after they’ve not acquired the ball, he was clearly speaking about work-rate, shutting folks down, working onerous for the group.
“So once you do hear that and also you’re a brand new participant, your confidence goes to be low.
“As a centre-forward it’s most likely one of many best positions on the pitch to return out of a hunch since you rating a aim and every thing is forgotten about.
“However the longer he goes on this aim drought and I’m certain at some stage he’s going to be out of the group, the longer that goes on, the extra you’re going to lose him.
“So I like Werner and I believe he’s an excellent participant, however I don’t suppose he’s a pure goalscorer – I’ve mentioned that earlier than.
“However due to his motion and his tempo, he’ll at all times get the alternatives to attain objectives.”
