Kai Harvetz have a new defining moment in Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel



Kai Havertz and Thomas Tuchel

This was only the second time Chelsea’s record signing has started a game for the blues in the position that convinced Chelsea to make him their record signing. No matter the form, injuries, team dynamics, and adaptation – that’s a strange position to be in after 28 games of the season for the blues.

Out of his comfort zone off the pitch as a 21-year-old German youngster in a new country, Havertz has looked uncomfortable in it, playing out of position with £72million worth of pressure weighing heavy on his shoulders. He has started showing up to his price tag to prove his worth it!


Havertz and Chelsea will be hoping that three points against Everton which in this case indicates by far his best performance for the Blues, proven to be just as accurate expectations of what is to come in the future.


Importantly, and unsurprisingly given his role on Monday, Havertz was in the box. For a player bought for his goals from midfield, the German has spent far too much of his time in a Chelsea shirt on the periphery of the action.

What Havertz thought was his second Premier League goal – Chelsea’s opener – turned out to be an own goal after Havertz’s deft touch was ruled to be heading wide before Ben Godfrey’s unfortunate intervention.


But the position Havertz took up in space deeper than Everton’s center-backs-backs – is exactly where he can and will do damage.
