According to Arsenal legend Paul Merson, the Blues actually looked better without Kai Havertz in the team.

Havertz was forced to isolate in November after contracting the Covid-19 and Merson believes Chelsea were a better team without him.

Merson told Daily Star: “He’s had a difficult time here and when he was ill with Covid, Chelsea actually looked better without him.

“I don’t know why Frank Lampard threw him right back into the team because his confidence looks shot.

“If you spend the amount of money they did on him, you want more than a utility player, so I’m surprised he’s played so many positions.”
