Kai Havertz Tells Lampard Best Position To Play Him Against Liverpool

Kai Havertz made his Premier League debut for Chelsea in Monday's win against Brighton and is expected to start again as the Blues face Liverpool this weekend.

The £72m signing believes he would be most effective playing in a No.10 role for Frank Lampard’s side in a mouthwatering clash against the Reds on Sunday.

Havertz played on the right wing, just behind Timo Werner and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in the more advanced positions.

The 21-year-old German is likely to start again for the Blues against Liverpool, and speaking ahead of the match Havertz discussed his favoured position.

“I played I think every offensive position at Leverkusen,” he said. “I played as a right winger, as a No.10, as a No.6, No.8 and sometimes as a striker as well.

“But for more it’s very important to have that flexibility on the pitch and to be creative, that’s something I like. I think I can play many positions.

“Of course, for me my best position is as a No.10, but of course I can play on the right side or as a striker as well. To be honest I’m happy to stay on the pitch. I think I’m flexible.”
