striker on the pitch.  The 21-year-old, who has made 20 appearances across-all-competitions so far, has been struggling to put out his true potential on display with only four goals and four assists under his name.


, who believes Frank Lampard has too many options on his squad, didn’t have to pursue Havertz since he doesn’t seem to be a necessary addition.

“'I look at Kai Havertz and wonder if Chelsea really needed to sign him last summer? He is obviously a player of great potential, but it never works buying a player because he is so highly rated, unless you have a predetermined idea where he will fit into the side,”

The Telegraph.

“I am starting to wonder if Frank Lampard has too many options and that is why he is yet to settle on the right formula.”

“After an inconsistent run, Frank Lampard has been playing down the idea Chelsea were ever title contenders.”

“Maybe this season was too soon, but although he may not have the best starting XI in England, Frank certainly has one of the strongest squads.”
