New Chelsea signing Kai Havertz made his debut in Chelsea’s 3-1 victory over Brighton at the Amex Stadium on Monday night.

Havertz had a quiet debut and it was clear that the former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder will need some time with his team-mates to bed in at the club.

Giving his verdict on Havertz’s debut, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard said: “I liked him. It’s not a game where you come away and say ‘there’s 10 vintage moments’ but I thought there were moments of big quality and calmness.

“It’s a big ask [to settle in immediately] there’s lot on his shoulders for the signing, that he’s young and coming into a new league.

“He plays the game at such a quality and the way in which he receives the ball. We saw a few glimpses of that. We saw him sprint back 80 yards to make a tackle after giving the ball away. Everything I’ve seen in terms of his character is spot on.

“His quality will come through. It’s asking a lot for him tonight but we saw glimpses. We’re going to see a lot more of him, I think he’s a hugely talented young player.”
