Lampard reveals plan for Kai Havertz amid tough start to Chelsea career

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard insists he knows Kai Havertz’s best position and that his role in the side will become clear when he reaches full fitness following the German’s slow start to life in the Premier League.

Havertz played wide on the right on his debut against Brighton and was then used centrally in the 2-0 defeat against Liverpool before being hauled off at half-time, with the German failing to impress in both games.

Lampard told a press conference on Tuesday: “Kai has played various positions in career, as number nine, number eight and a number 10.

“He played lots off the right for Leverkusen and I have my own vision going forward.

“The key now is getting him fit.

“Kai, with the situation we are in we aren’t in a position where we can wait. We need to get him fit, and it’ll become very clear why he’s here.”
