Why Kai Harvetz is dangerous, plus winning formation, lineup in Chelsea

Chelsea latest arrival, Kai Havertz has shown to be a dangerous player as his statistics show that he is such a super player.

That is why the Blues published some rather impressive stats from the attacking star.

In the past five years, no outfield player under the age of 21 has been on the pitch for longer in any of Europe’s big five leagues than Havertz.

His 8679 minutes played is testament to both his star quality from such a young age, and his fitness record.

In that same timeframe and with the same parameters, he is second for goals scored, with 35, behind only Kylian Mbappe.

For assists he ranks fourth, with 21, beaten only by Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele and Jadon

Frank Lampard has got the problem managers of top sides face… how to keep everyone happy and fit all the stars in the team.

Kai Havertz’s arrival yesterday meant he joined Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell through the door at Stamford Bridge.

Now Lamps must work out how to get them all in.

One option could be a 4-3-3 with Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal, a back four of Cesar Azpilicueta, Silva, Antonio Rudiger and Chilwell.

Kante or Jorginho could sit in midfield with Havertz and Mason Mount pushing on to support a front three of Ziyech, Werner and Christian Pulisic.

Alternatively, a 4-2-3-1 may be an option with the same back five, two of Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic sitting with Ziyech, Havertz and Werner operating as a three behind Olivier Giroud or Tammy Abraham.
