Kai Havertz And Timo Werner To Start Against Brighton To Make Their First EPL Debut For Chelsea

Germany national team manager Joachim Low believes his side can benefit from Timo Werner and Kai Havertz taking the next step in their careers at Chelsea.

The duo left the Bundesliga this summer in favour of moves to Stamford Bridge, with Havertz joining from Bayer Leverkusen on Friday in a deal worth £70 million ($91m) including add-ons.

That transfer followed Chelsea’s signing of Werner in June, with the striker moving from RB Leipzig in a £47.5 million ($59m) deal.

Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Malang Sarr, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and most recently Kai Havertz have all walked through the Stamford Bridge door and Chelsea may not be done there.

They’re reportedly closing in on the signing of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy from Rennes, while West Ham star Declan Rice has also been heavily linked with a move.

Chelsea have gone for it this summer and having done well to finish in the top four last season, fans will be hoping they can mount a serious challenge for the title this term.

The first obstacle in their potential title bid sees them travel to Brighton on Monday, who they actually played in a pre-season friendly last month.

That match finished 1-1 but Chelsea will want the victory this time around if they’re to keep up with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City in 2020/21.

 

The Italian is better suited in a midfield three but the need for the team to be tighter in defence firmly outweighs playing to his strengths. He’s an elite level footballer, he can adjust to this slightly different role.

There’s also the small matter of who should play in goal. Whether Mendy signs before the Brighton clash or not, it’s likely Lampard will have to pick between Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballero.

We’ve gone for the veteran Argentina international as Lampard has clearly run out of patience for Chelsea’s record signing.

Timo Werner and Kai Havertz prediction made in Chelsea threat to Liverpool

New Chelsea duo Timo Werner and Kai Havertz have been tipped to help Frank Lampard’s side achieve extraordinary things this season. The Blues have gone big this summer to help bolster Lampard’s options for the new campaign.

Lampard was unable to make any signings during his first summer in charge due to a transfer ban while they were unable to bring anybody in during the January window.

But Chelsea have made up for that this summer with an outlay in excess of £200million on new recruits.
