Kai Havertz is slowly starting to feel more confident in a Chelsea shirt.
Bayer Leverkusen received a neat £72 million for his sale last summer but so far, the German has not been an immediate hit.
That is understandable, given his position and age. At 21, he is still developing into what could be his best role in a team. Frank Lampard has high hopes of turning Havertz into a future star at the Bridge.
While Premier League starts are hard to come by right now, Havertz did make his 15th appearance for the club against Krasnodar on Tuesday. Speaking after the game, Havertz said, “I’m feeling very good at Chelsea – the start was not my best. I give every day my best.
“We can be happy. A draw today when we played a good match. There were a lot of changes but we played as a team. The first half was not too bad – we created chances, but we have to score a goal.”
Havertz came close to scoring against the Russian side but did not have luck by his side. He added, “I had to score the goal. I’m not happy with that. I will try to do that next time.”
