"There’s no doubt about his quality" | Tuchel happy with Havertz

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes Kai Havertz can play a big role in their bid to finish in the Premier League's top four.

The 80-million Euro signing impressed in the Londoners' 2-0 win over Everton last night, keeping them in the Champions League places.

He's struggled since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Bayer Leverkusen, but Tuchel believes that the 21-year-old Havertz may have turned a corner.

“I’m very happy with his performance - there’s no doubt about his quality, his talent and also not about his character," Tuchel said after Chelsea made it eleven games unbeaten under their new coach.

“He needs to adapt to the Premier League, he needs to a club where you play to win every game, where the highest standards are normal. That’s a normal process also for him to adapt to this mentality.

“He showed up between the lines and used his potential to accelerate our game and to increase the touches in the box and to be responsible for assists and through-balls, and also to take the responsibility to finish himself. And from here, on we go.”

“I feel positive energy from everyone around the team in Cobham, towards my staff, towards football and my team.”
