Former Chelsea player manager Glenn Hoddle has revealed what Kai Havertz must start doing to score goals for Chelsea.

Kai Havertz sealed a big money transfer from Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea and was expected to bring a creative spark to the Chelsea attack, but has so far failed to do so.

Glenn Hoddle has now revealed that Havertz must learn to time his run into the Chelsea penalty box so he can score more goals and be of more influence to the team.

“At the moment Havertz is not showing anywhere near the player he was showing in Germany,” Hoddle told the Evening Standard.

“He is playing a bit deeper at Chelsea and I think if he starts arriving in the penalty area a bit more then we will start to see the best of him.

“He is a good player and there is more to come, but he looks like a character who needs a bit of time to settle.

“It is almost as if he just wants to be a nice player. For me, he has to be a little bit more assertive. Get himself in the box, hurt himself a little bit in the sense of his running ability to get in the box. And I think he will score goals.

“He is finding it difficult to adjust but he will get there in the end. He is still a young man and he is a good enough player to adapt to the tempo and the ferocity of the Premier League.”
