Kai Havertz has struggled to impress since his summer switch to Chelsea from German club Bayer Leverkusen.

Havertz underwhelmed again in Tuesday night’s defeat to Wolves, subbed off shortly after getting nutmegged by Daniel Podence.

In 71 minutes on the pitch he managed no goals, no assists, no shots, no key passes, no accurate crosses, no successful dribbles, and no ground duels won.

According to German football expert Christian Falk, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is to be blamed for Havertz’s struggles at Chelsea.

Falk told Daily Star: “I think it’s very hard for Havertz to develop in such changing systems. I don’t know why Lampard is doing that.

“For example, Bayern was struggling last season and changed the coach to Hansi Flick. His biggest change was that he let the players always play the same way.

“It helped the players to always be playing the same position. I think Havertz when he plays at Chelsea in a 4-2-3-1, in the middle, it is very good for him.

“But when he has to play wide and in other positions, I think it doesn’t help a young player to develop.”
