Kai Havertz

Thomas Tuchel was “very pleased” with Kai Havertz’s contribution to Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Everton on Monday night.

Tuchel extended his unbeaten streak at Chelsea to 11 games and Havertz put up one of his best performances at Stamford Bridge.

The German international was heavily involved that night.  His shot from a Marcos Alonso cross deflected from Everton defender Ben Godfrey and into the back of the net to open the scoring.

In the second half he saw a goal disallowed after being awarded it with his hand in preparation, but then ran through and won a penalty after being brought down by Jordan Pickford.

Jorginho stepped up to slot home from the penalty spot and added three points for the Blues, who tightened their grip on a spot in the top four.

“We deserved to win. It was a very difficult first half but we controlled it completely. Second half we increased our level and had a lot of dangerous attacks. Tuchel told BT Sport

“Very pleased with Kai. It was the trust we gave him and used the trust we gave him. He is a player who has all the ability to be a dominant figure in the offense and he stepped up.
