According to Chelsea legend Frank Leboeuf, Chelsea Leboeuf,Chelsea midfielder Kai Havertz was invisible during the 2-1 defeat to Wolves on Tuesday night.

Havertz started against Wolves but struggled to make much of an impact before being replaced by Mateo Kovacic midway through the second half.

Leboeuf admits he is ‘very concerned’ about the form of Havertz and has urged the Chelsea midfielder to provide answers.

Asked to rate Havertz’s performance against Wolves, Lebouef told ESPN: “Almost invisible.

“I touched on the point some weeks ago. We heard Frank Lampard say, ‘no, we need to give him time’.

“But I don’t know, it’s something that I don’t like, the way sometimes it feels like he’s not there, that he’s not trying to compensate for a lack of confidence with a desire or just being a warrior, showing us that, ‘okay, I’m not good at the moment, but I’m going to fight for the club and not be invisible.’

“We share texts during the game and we were wondering if he was on the field. You can be bad – [Timo] Werner didn’t have a good game – but we saw him trying to get something going.

“We don’t see Havertz getting anything. I’m very concerned about that guy.

“I don’t forget the price they paid and I know he’s only 21 but we see players who arrived last summer who didn’t need much time to adapt and being very influential.

“I don’t understand what Havertz is doing right now but I want answers.”
