Chelsea were ahead early at Stamford Bridge following Tammy Abraham’s goal in the 19th minute. The 21-year-old latched onto a ball from Mason Mount after a deceiving dummy by Tammy Abraham. Havertz put his effort into the net with a deft left-footed finish.

After finishing the first half at 2-0, the hosts proceeded to kill off the game with a goal from Ross Barkley four minutes after the break. Havertz doubled his Chelsea account after impressive pressing by the Chelsea’s front line won them the ball. Tammy Abraham set up the ball for Havertz, who only had the goalkeeper to beat.

Right after the hour mark, Havertz sealed his hat-trick with the easiest of finishes. A ball from over the top by Abraham forced the keeper into an awkward situation right at the edge of the box. Havertz proceeded to roll the ball into an empty net to extend the lead to 6-0.

“Kai has played various positions in career, as number nine, number eight and a number 10,He played lots off the right for Leverkusen and I have my own vision going forward.

“The key now is getting him fit. Kai, with the situation we are in we aren’t in a position where we can wait. We need to get him fit, and it’ll become very clear why he’s here.”

The manager also confirmed that latest signing goalkeeper Edouard Mendy would be announced tomorrow.
