Jamie Carragher has revealed he is unsure where Kai Havertz belongs in the Chelsea starting XI.
We ended months of transfer speculation in the summer when they managed to convince Bayer Leverkusen into letting Havertz make the move to London, and break their own club transfer record in the process.
But since his move to the club, Havertz has not made the impression that many had hoped for and there has been some doubts as whether or not he is ready to play in the Premier League and be a big player for the club
And Speaking after the Blues’ defeat against the Reds at the weekend, he said to TalkSport: “I do look and already think, even though it’s only two games in, ‘where does Havertz play? Where does he fit into a 4-3-3?’
“He almost looks like a No.10 and we just don’t see them in football as much now.
“So he’s either going to have to be part of the front three in a wide position or he’s going to have to be part of a midfield three and be the attacking player from the midfield.
“But certainly where he played today, I don’t think that probably suited Chelsea.
“It may have suited him, he played for Leverkusen in the false nine, but it’s working out where he [Frank Lampard] is going to play all these players.”
Havertz needs time to settle and get used to the English game, we cant expect him to be an instant success, sometimes it does not work like that with young players.
