Premier League legend and record scorer Alan Shearer, has hailed Chelsea’s display in the goalless draw at the Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.

For all of Chelsea’s play, the Blues couldn’t find the back of the net, with Kai Havertz missing two big chances to put Chelsea ahead.

Kai Havertz played as a false nine, but he wasn’t able to get on the scoresheet at Elland Road, despite being presented with two good chances.

Speaking after the game, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel rued the team’s missed chances against Leeds and admitted that his side must learn to be clinical if they want to achieve success.

Former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer, admitted that Chelsea’s problem lie in the final third, and he blamed Kai Havertz for not taking his chances.

“I thought Chelsea played really well, they got into some excellent positions but they just weren’t clinical enough,” Shearer told host Gary Lineker.

“Tuchel said about Havertz getting forward and making the runs into the box. He didn’t quite do that, certainly in the first half, because he could have had two or three tap-ins if he had.

“Yes, they played well. Yes, they got into positions.

“But they certainly weren’t clinical enough. If Havertz is going to play in that role, then he’s got to get into those positions more than he did in the first half.”
