The Obvious Reason Why Kai Havertz Didn’t Have A Great Premier League Debut.
Just some hours ago, Chelsea’s Timo Werner and Kai Havertz made their much talked about debut for Chelsea and as expected it gathered more comments and reactions from football fans and observers.
Kai Havertz didn’t have the best of debuts for his new club and in this article we try to look at the main reason why he didn’t play well.
Chelsea have splashed the cash this summer on targets and it is only normal that fans expect them to improve on last season achievements. Havertz started the game against Brighton on Monday night with hopes of making meaningful impact in his first match for Chelsea, but it didn’t turn out well for the 21-year-old German who was signed from Leverkusen.
From the match analysis and after I rewatched his movements and touches, it is obvious that the reason why Havertz was not in his creative best was because He was played out of Position by Frank Lampard. For a player like Havertz, he trives being the creator, the final passer, and the being in the creative hole, he was played on the right wing by Lampard yesterday.
After Ruben Loftus Cheek was subbed off, Havertz’s movements changed a little bit and he became more visible as Barkley came in and helped give Chelsea more domination. Barkley helped Chelsea hold the ball more which yielded positive results.
Havertz thrives more in the middle and he enjoys playing in a team that controls the game, Chelsea didn’t control the game enough yesterday, especially in the forst half. so that he can access holes and also make meaningful runs.
Too Early for People to Judge him, he’ll have more time to show his Class!
