Lampard reveals Kai Havertz’s best position

Ahead of his debut against Brighton on Monday at the Amex Stadium, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed the best position of new Chelsea signing Kai Havertz.

Asked about Havertz’s best position, Lampard told the media: “Kai with his qualities is flexible to play in different positions, I haven’t changed my view in a few days of seeing him.

“I think we can use his versatility. One of the pluses when I spoke to Kai is that he is very comfortable. He is not that ‘I want to play in this position, this is all I want’. He is potentially very happy to help the team, he can give us quality in different areas so it is not one that we have to nail down.”

Meanwhile, Lampard has revealed Cesar Azpilicueta and Christian Pulisic are available for selection for Monday’s game against Brighton.

Both players picked up injuries in the FA Cup defeat to Arsenal.

Lampard added: “Yeah I am very happy to have them both back. They both trained since yesterday, their first day fully training with the team. They are in contention for Monday.

“I have to be careful. I have a squad to pick from, but the way they are training and the attitude they have come back with looks like they are over those injuries.

“I will just have to make sure I manage them back in in their own ways.”
