It’s a huge surprise that Kai Havertz didn’t get on the scoresheet after a very fine performance against Everton.

A deflected Kai Havertz shot which went off Toffees defender Ben Godfrey put Chelsea ahead, but it was recorded as an own goal.

The 21-year-old was the man of the match, as he also had a goal ruled out for handball and also won the penalty which was duly converted by Jorginho.

Speaking after the game, Havertz joked that it should have been his goal, but he didn’t bother as long as the ball went into the net.

Kai Havertz laughed as he said: “I think it’s my goal, 100 per cent!

“No, I don’t know, but it doesn’t matter to be honest. It’s a goal and that is what counts, the rest is not important for me.”

Havertz went on to admit that he was pleased with the result and Chelsea deserved to beat Everton 2-0.

“We are very happy. I think we deserved to win, 2-0 is very good for us against a strong opponent.

“We knew before the match that Everton are a very strong team, defensively they’re very good, but I think we played very well. The first half was not easy, we didn’t have many chances and we were lucky with the goal, but we kept going.”
