Havertz Vows To Improve After Everton Display

Kai Havertz has promised Chelsea fans that he will continue to work hard to justify his price tag.

The German international joined Chelsea from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer in a big-money move, buy he has struggled for form and also battled with Covid-19 and a niggling injury.

He started in the 2-0 victory over Everton on Monday and impressed in a false nine role which reminded many of his abilities.

The former Leverkusen star expressed his delight after returning from injury to help Chelsea to a 2-0 win over Everton.

“It was good for me and I gave my best. The first seven months were not easy for me but you have to keep working and I did that. So I’m very happy, but of course it was my first match after injury. I think it was a good performance from me, but you cannot say this after one performance.

‘You have to be strong in the next few matches as well and that’s my goal. I will try to improve, I will try to give my best in the next few weeks and then I hope it will continue like that.

‘I played like a false nine, I had the freedom to go everywhere I wanted to go, and I think that’s good for me. I like to have freedom on the pitch. I think I was lucky to score a goal but I’m very happy with the performance, not only from me but the whole group. I think we can do a lot better than today, but the result was a win so of course we’re very happy with it.’ 

Havertz will hope to get an opportunity to start in Chelsea’s next Premier League match against Leeds United on Saturday.
