Kai Havertz scored twice in the weekend win over Burnley.
Thomas Tuchel praises Havertz after the German playmaker scored two goals in quick succession to help beat Burnley 4-0 this Saturday.
The German is making it hard for Romelu Lukaku who is struggling to get back on the first-team.
Havertz started both in the Carabao Cup final and in the Champions League win over Lille.
“He gives a lot of intensity and he’s involved in goals,” Tuchel said of Havertz. “He scored again, so it’s a very good moment and it’s on him to keep going. This is how it is.
“We played the last cup match without him, Timo was very strong and was very close to starting (on Saturday). Romelu got his goal and we will need everybody, but, at this moment, he’s in really good shape.”
“What he gives us is huge volume,” Tuchel added of the Germany international.
“He loves to create overloads and half spaces and this is what he gives. It’s just his style of play, his characteristic as a player. He’s in good shape, he’s confident.”
