Kai Havertz was brilliant in Monday’s 2-0 win over Everton. The Blues needed a victory in that game, and Havertz stepped up to the plate.

However, despite his brilliance on Monday night, Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson doesn’t think that the 21-year-old is ready to play week in week out for Chelsea.

Merson also took time to hail the work Tuchel has done so far, but also pointed that another big problem is the lack of goals in the team.

“Everything is going right for Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel, at the moment,” Paul Merson told Sky Sports.

“They’ve had two big results against Liverpool and Everton to continue what has been an unbelievable run and full credit has to go to Tuchel.Sponsored Links

“They were a real handful against Everton, and Kai Havertz epitomised that. We finally saw his best on Monday, he was simply outstanding. I didn’t realise how quick he was! He was a real handful and the decision to bring him in last night was rewarded.

“When you are winning every week that’s what happens. The problems he has now is Havertz just had his best game for Chelsea by a million miles, but I’d be surprised if he plays next week. Mason Mount was outstanding against Liverpool but then he didn’t play against Everton. They look really good.

“The one problem I still see is that they don’t score a lot of goals. For all the game they had against Everton, I thought it was a game where they probably could have blown the opposition away. Some of the passing and some of the movement was outstanding.

“I really like the manager. He looks really good and has made a really impressive start at Stamford Bridge.”
